    The(dhu or dhee)

    Can anyone help me on using proper pronunciation of 'the' in a sentence.
    Likely when to use 'dhu' and 'dhee'...............

    You're most welcome. Please note that, most North American speakers I know tend not to say "thee", these days, before a word that begins with a vowel.
