Hello, everyone. In my experience with english, i've noticed many people pronouncing words such as "enter", "internet", "interview" and "Atlanta" with a unpronounced t, making those words sound like "ener", "inernet", "inerview" and "Atlanta". From what i've seen, it is more common in American English, the one i am most adapted to. The question is: how often does this occur, and how should i pronounce them?

There was an opportunistic joke about this pronunciation in an episode of The Simpsons https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Blunder_Years

When using North American English (NAmE, NAE) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_English it's normal to use the unpronounced t.

Thanks a lot! I think that sums it up! Also, if you don't mind, could you answer one more question? It's a simple one, so i guess it's not worth a post of it's own. From your experience, the word "with" is pronounced more often with a voiced or unvoiced th sound?

Voiced. Pronunciation of many words can vary among individuals so, that hard th sound be unclear sometimes, depending on how someone speaks. It should be the same sound in that.
