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

    Any short words beginning with letters TH and then followed by a word beginning with letter D.

    For example ' I hate when they do that' causes problems with my tongue

    For me it has to be the "internet". Do you pronounce "t"? Also "comfortable" gives me trouble, i usually go with "comfy".

    The problem is that I don't know if I am pronouncing a word correctly or not. When I don't know, How I can say that it is difficult or not. I tried one of these programs that check pronounciation but they don't work well yet.

    But there are some words that I constantly forget their pronounciation.
    the most frequent is "thesaurus". Now that I mentioned it I check it again at mariam webster web site.

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

    The hardest thing for me to pronounce is: "clothes & cloths".
    Everything with "ths" as ending gives me a lot of problems!

    I try very hard to disguise the fact that I'm not British but these words have me bury my head in shame most of the time. All the lovely Natives of this forum: do you maybe have tips on how to improve this?

    Fluency is a matter of practice and you should read out some Novel text which is based on day-to-day conversation. After having read through any Noven, you must try to expain those events or matter described therein to friendts. This would certainly improve your english fluency.

    Yes indeed, trying to explain something specific to another person in English is a good way to stretch your mind. Also: reading a new story or magazine article and trying to have a discussion about it. That way you will not only learn to think in English, but you can also learn from the person you are in discussion with.
