    It should rhyme with lay or hay, it will come with more practice. A lot of people mispronounce things.

    Do you have an accent or something? If that's how you pronounce it, that's how you pronounce it. People will get over it eventually and start getting bored of making fun of you.

    It's literally said how it looks - say. Ess-ay-why. Say, like hay or play. There's no 'r' in the word.
