I am wondering which is the correct way to pronounce JOIE DE VIVRE.
I am finding that online people pronounce it two different ways -

1. jwah - dee - veeve - rah
2. jwah - dee - veeve

which is correct? thanks!

I'm pretty sure it's fine either way, my French speaking friends say it (and similar sounding words, such as livre) in both ways.

I would say #1, but not "rah" more like.. rrrrrrrrrrr. (LOL) Do you understand that?!?!

Oh and my credibility would be... I studied French until I graduated.

Say it like Mika said, if you want to sound even more French, roll your r's with your tongue :) haha

Most French people pronounce the R very slightly and almost undetectable.
At least, that's what i've always encountered.
