Try about.com, as in http://german.about.com

It has German language tutorials, and the initial chapters have
pronunciation guides / wav files.  I once had a French-English-French
dictionary (brick & mortar version) that had pronunciation guides and a
resource page explaining how certain syllables / guide symbols were supposed
to be spoken, but it still assumed knowledge of some basic words in French /
English.

And as you yourself would have undoubtedly proclaimed on countless
occasions, google is your friend.

However, only su can help you if you need guides on Indian languages.

I assume you have some trouble with French, and to some extent German, but
the latter is easier to speak if you can get around the excessively long
spelling.
