i would say the best way to pronounce Nargile would be:

naarr - giil - eh

you need to roll your tongue a bit when you pronounce the 'r'. Try saying each part out loud and eventually bring it together and let it roll off the tongue.

In Turkey, the term shisha and hookah don't exist, so if you are ever there, just ask for a Nargile Café or look out for all the smoke!
