Tanzania. according to the documentary I'm watching it is pronounced: Tan-ZANY-uh. I thought it was more Tan-zah-NEE-uh.

Tan-za-nee-yah.

Of course, the correct answer is how they say it. Not you, me, or the announcer.

Who cares how they pronounce it. they are a third world country. What counts is how I pronounce it. do they even know what the interweb is?

Edit: Just kidding, don't ban me.

Pronounce something wrong and all kinds of havoc may result. To wit,
Ron: Wingardium LeviosAA!
Hermione: Stop! Stop! Stop! You're going to take someone's eye out! Besides, you're saying it wrong. It's LeviOsa, not LevioSA.
Ron: You do it then if you're so clever. Go on, go on.
Hermione: Wingardium Leviosa!

because my mother language can not
pronounce "z". the "z" is changed to "j"
and syllables are definitely divided.

tanzania
tan-ja-ni-a
탄-자-니-아
탄자니아

syllable is one to one correspondece to one character.
