another tricky sound for me,

/eə/ corresponds to the vowel sound in words like "hair" and "wear"

Some common words which practice the pronunciation of /eə/ include the following:
with "ar": bare - care - dare - fare - hare - rare - scare - share - spare - square;
with "air": air - chair - fair - hair - pair - stairs;
with "ear": bear - swear - tear - wear;

If you want to practice, try to say:
The hair of this bear is light like the air and it wear a pair of shoes, I swear you!
