letters can sound different for each word, unlike spanish vowels which will always make the same sound, english is probably one of the hardest mainstream languages to master. despite that 1 in every 7 people can speak it.

one thing wrong with your 2nd choice is that you cant use the letter your trying to pronounce in the pronunciation, otherwise you dont know the beginning sound.
