Well I never!

well-i-never

The interesting part here is the sound /ə/ on the final, unstressed syllable. Don’t open your mouth too much. You can pronounce the final r or not, depending on your accent.

This phrase means “That’s surprising!”. Because you’re expressing surprise, keep your voice in high key, and give plenty of stress.
