Can You Pronounce All These Words Correctly? →

If you can, you speak English better than 90 percent of the world’s English speakers, apparently.

After trying these verses a Frenchman said (evidently) that he’d prefer six months of hard labour to reading six lines aloud.

"Dearest creature in creation,
Study English pronunciation.
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.
I will keep you, Suzy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy.
Tear in eye, your dress will tear.
So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.
Just compare heart, beard, and heard…”
