pronuon this word

I would translate this into normalspeak as "Hello, I wonder if someone could tell me how to pronounce this word."

I'm guessing that it is the double O that is giving you pause, and that you are wondering if the vowel sound changes like it does in English words such as "cool." The answer is no. The oo here is pronounced the same as a single O, but twice as long (an extra beat, in musical terms).

It is pronounced exactly like any other Spanish words: each letter has one sound. Much easier than in English.

By the way, the stress is on the third "o":

zoológico

That's why we put accents: to know exactly how to stress words.
