- For Teachers
I am making a list of English words which are hard to pronounce, or whose pronounciation may be uncertain. If you have any likely candidates, please send them or post them. I already have all the words with *ough in the list!
Whether a word is easy to pronounce depends very much on your native language.
However, the uncertainty problem is certainly one that many English students struggle with, understandably.
I won't add any right now, as I'll be here for hours, but I would like to recommend a very useful website for checking pronunciation:
Go to the English section, type in any word, and you're bound to find several examples of pronunciation to listen to (includes many different native accents which can be very interesting!)
