Do You Have Perfect Pronunciation?

3 Jan

Found this somewhere online and thought it highly amusing (in a time-wasting kind of way). If you like words, or think you cannot be fooled by the quirks of English spellings, read on!

“If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world.

After trying the verses, a Frenchman said he’d prefer six months of hard labour to reading six lines aloud”.

(English Pronunciation by G. Nolst Trenité)

So. Go on, go and have a look 🙂

Can you do it???
