Pronunciation is easy as croat is phonetical. They do have some different letters though that you will need to learn. I don't have the symbols available on my computer but have put pronunciation help on the words that contain them.

Other pronunication differences are:

The j is pronounced as y
u is oo
o is ou as in four
i is ee like in see
nj is ny like in canyon
lj is ly like the li in milion
e is short as in let
