    The correct pronunciation is like 'Shuwen'. There is no 'z' sound.

    I pronounce it zoo-en
    No child these days ever gets to hear those all-important, character building words: "You lost, Bobby! You lost, you're a loser, Bobby!" They miss out on that. You know what they tell a kid who lost these days? "You were the last winner." A lot of these kids never get to hear the truth about themselves until they're in their twenties. When their boss calls them in and says "Bobby, clean the shit out of your desk and get the fuck out of here, you're a loser."

    Xuen is pronounced (shwen), it's one syllable.
