    Wink Re: What word do you think is the hardest to pronounce???

    Nothing is difficult if you try your best, I think.I remeber that last year,September, I have a oral English match.During that time, I try my best to practice my pronunciation.At last,I got the success. So far, I haven't found one.

    Reply to Latoof: My English is so-so, but your words remind me. I remeber that at past I can't differentiate the " born" and the " bone".How about you?

    I was suffering because of the word question as I said before. The problem was because of the s sound followed by the ch one. Now I am suffering because of the words burn and born, effect and affect... It is all about similar sounds pronunciation.

    Well, I have the same problem here. Somehow I find "treat" is one of the words in my "Hard To Pronounce Dictionary". Coz I think treat and Cheat sound kinda similar~
    And I used to have difficulties with pronouncing "Train" and "trade".

    P.S. I guess TR sound is still hard for me to pronounce.

    Yeah I remembered a word that a lot of us in the class struggled to get it tight. That was the word Chemistry. Some of us pronunced it with K and others with ch. I needed a time to stop this confusion.
