The pronunciation is awful!

Meh, the "bull - ox" relation is perfectly analogous to the "taur - bou" one, so I agree with the course makers in their decision to make the distinction.

Americans are very careless in their use of nouns for various animals. I have seen movies where bulls were called cows. Oxen are castrated bulls.

Is "bou" a bull or a castrated bull?
