All I need is to know how to pronounce "aestuo" it means to burn with passion or something along those lines. Tell me in terms such as "ice2o" i think thats something close to it but im not sure, thanks.

Your rendition is about as close as you can get by an English comparison. However, Latin, like all languages, does not have the same exact sounds as we have in English.
