Words To Do Your Worst By

According to... Cambridge ESOL,these are some words learners have serious problems pronouncing...

Try pronouncing them as they're spelt - (fonetikaly, that is) - and you'll start to see the problem.

According to Cambridge ESOL we should be woefully wary of these treacherous traitors...

And as you look through them you can appreciate the problems. They're monsters!

Cambridge ESOL asked for learners to contribute their own list of dastardly devilish words and this is a selection of them. Probably just as scary as the list above.

Even I've had problems with a few of them.

So goodness knows what non-native speakers must think of these linquistic lepers...

But that's not the concern of The SNAIL. We lafff, I mean laugh at such idiosynchratic anomolies. It's all part of the game. And if you don't want to play, don't put your money down, as they say...
