Multi-vowel confusion

I've seen some syllables that have two vowels, one in the "stack" and one to the side. The lady speaks quickly and without an option to slow her down, I'm unsure which vowel gets pronounced first in that scenario. Is there a rule for this?

You are talking about dipthongs, or two vowels clustered together. Clusters include ㅘ (wa), ㅚ (way), 위 (wi), 워 (wo) and ㅙ (wae).
