'University' is a five-syllable word with secondary stress on the first syllable, and primary stress on the third syllable. U-ni-ver-si-ty. University. It begins with the 'ju' diphthong, uni-, uni-.

Then we have the stressed syllable -ver-. It begins with the V consonant sound, so the bottom lip will come and make contact with the bottom of the top front teeth, vv, vv. Univer-. The vowel sound is the UR as in HER vowel, -ver-, -ver-, so you don't need much jaw drop for that. The tongue will pull back, and make contact here with the roof of the mouth, or the insides of the teeth. Univer-sity. Then we have two unstressed syllables that will be flat, lower in pitch and volume, -sity, sity. I want to point out, we have a T here between two vowel sounds. That means it's going to be a flap, not a True T, -sity, -sity, -sity. University. University. He teaches at New York University. That's it, your Word of the Week. Try it out yourself. Make up a sentence with the word, record it, and post it as a video response to this video on YouTube. I can't wait to watch it. That's it, and thanks so much for using Rachel's English.
