It doesn't take long to learn how to pronounce and write Azerbaijani. The alphabet seems a bit strange at first, but it is not really very different from English. Hey, the alphabet used to be in Arabic script and then in Cyrillic! You just need to get used to a few diacriticals and then you will be reading aloud in Azerbaijani.
Here's the guide. Letters pronounced just as in English have no explanation.
Aa - A as in almond. Mouth is open in a vertical oval. Sounds like saying Ahhh at the doctor's.
Cc - J as in jump.
Çc - Ch as in chocolate.
Ee - Long a sound. Like é in the French word trés.
Əə - Quite a flat-sounding a, as in fat. Mouth open in a horizontal oval.
Gg - G as in argue.
Ğğ - Most difficult sound - like the French uvular r, as in - yes, again - trés. Should come with a warning label.
Xx - Like the ch in the Scottish loch.
Iı - E as in wanted. Sound is made very far back in the mouth.
İi - Ee as in meet.
Jj - S as in treasure. Like the French j in journal.
Qq - G as in goat.
Oo - Long o sound, as in goat.
Öö - Like eu in the French deux.
Şş - Sh as in sheep.
Uu - Oo as in food.
Üü - U in the French tu. Very far to the front of the mouth.
