German - gern geschehen - how to pronounce?

These words have shown up in the German study but the study hasn't taught me how to pronounce them, only what they mean. Can somehow tell me how to pronounce this?

You can listen to the pronunciation by native speakers on forvo.com: https://forvo.com/search/gern%20geschehen/ (The pronunciation by the user "firmian" is closest to how I would pronounce it, I believe).

Gern g-air-n

Geschehen ge-shay-en

Keep in mind that it's not the diphtong "ay", [eɪ], but just a plain/flat [e].

You can also just write any text you want pronounced into Google Translate, the pronunciation is often quite good nowadays. But yes, if you can get it from Forvo, that's better.

google translate does not always have a good pronunciation.

I agree. That's why I figured I'd ask here.

It's pretty good, and getting better. Just the prosody is off.
