Explanation: I cannot type the phonetic signs here.
For the correct pronunciation, You can look at the website and download the upper file bearing the title 'Uitleg fonetisch schrift Nederlands in de Wereld'.
The -ij- in 'vrolijk' is pronounced as the -e- in 'de'.
Please don't take the option of George Vardanyan, it's totally wrong!!!
Explanation: it's a pity I can't type it here in proper phonetics...
word by word:
"vro" as "fro" in "frozen" fr
"lijk" as "luck"
"kerst" pronounced a bit like "cursed" BUT instead of "u" pronounce an "e", as in "jest" -> "cersed"
"feest" -> pronounce "ee" as the "a" in "debate" or "face"
Okay, I know, not easy... I'll try to put a pdf with the proper phonetics on my website or so...

Explanation: I'll try to explain this character by character:
V as in voluntary
R as in religion (try to use a French 'r'; "the French "r" sound is fairly different from the English one. In English, "r" is soft, round. In contrary, in French, "r" is guttural and must be pronounced like Scottish people do (maybe, a little bit less guttural !)".
