The vowel of the letters B, C, D, G, P, W are spoken like the you described it for the T.

For the C it is "tse", with e like the German E as you described it for the T or the E

For Y (Ypsilon) take the y from "rhythm" and then say ypseelon with the stress on the first syllable. English Oo is spoken like German U. German Y is spoken like German Ü, maybe like the English y in pyramid or rhythm?

W: It's pronounced like the word 'Air' but don't pronounce the 'r' and starting with a 'v'.

Not the "v" instead of the "r" as your wrote it by now.

      This is the content you learn right off the bat in a first-year school course. Thanks, it always helps to review stuff that I don’t see enough.

      For me as an English-learner: What means "bat" in this context? I know the bat as a flying animal which is not a bird. And in my dictionary I just read that it can also be a stick to hit things in sport (I do not know this exactly) and as a verb it can mean "to hit a ball". Is it used figuratively here?
