    I am assuming that you want the english phonetic?
    If yes, e sounds like eh in egg and a is ah like in apple.
    S is s like in something.
    I hope this helps.

    You pronounce it like "seh-ah", I think it's close to the pronunciation of the animal "bear".

    hahah, I liked the boston accent comment. Im a proud Massachusetts native and missing that accent here in South America. True, i agree, "say ahhh"

    Yeah, the Boston accent remark was cute and accurate. But I must disagree with the dentist's "Say AAHH". The "a" in sea is short, open and pure, like all Spanish vowels, as the A in Andes. It cannot be long as in AAHH unless you like your Spanish spoken with a thick Boston accent. So sea is say-A as in Andes.
