Oh, well, what about Danish? Tell me about one thing that makes sense in that language. It puts English to shame when it comes to the relation between spelling and pronunciation. :p


Danish is easy for me cause my dialect is similar. 8)

I never had a hard time pronouncing things until I tried learning some Vietnamese. Oh my goodness.

What about the word "Sphinx"? My mum doesn't usually have a problem with pronouncing English words, but she just can't pronounce this. It keeps coming out as "Swinx" or something similar.
