You mean, the right way?
Wouldn't you want people in other nations to pronounce the name of your country the way it's intended to be? Or should we just make up our own names for countries entirely?
Why should he mispronounce the name of the country to make you feel better about yourself?

English is a Germanic language, in case you didn't know. You can have that one for free, too.

If the Brits speak English so well, why do they add a "u" to some words? Don't they know that it's wrong?
Really though, I read an article some time back that said that Americans not adding a "u" into words like color and honor is more correct than than adding it. It has something to do with words being taken from other languages or being native English words. It was kinda interesting...to a nerd like me.

This pic sums it all up...

It was a collection of languages spoke in Northern Iron Age Europe, which included OLD ENGLISH (which was also a collection of other dialects), which is where our modern English came from, or EVOLVED from. Old English was mostly created by the Saxons.
So what was your point?
