I'll second Crumbs' suggestion of forvo.com. It's a helpful resource to get a sense of how to pronounce unfamiliar words or place names. With French words, just be sure to favor people from France rather than Belgian, Swiss, or Canadian contributors. Those last three aren't necessarily wrong, but they commonly differ from people who live in France.
And place names can be quite interesting. Reims is one example. Paris is another (though the French pronunciation is widely known).
One is a place in southern Bourgogne near where I used to live: La Clayette: a pretty little town with a château next to a large moat/reservoir. It didn't take long to learn that locals don't pronounce it as Law Klay Yet.
Nope. Locals pronounce it "Law Klett." It's as if the "a" and the "y" weren't there.
