Here are 10 English words that non-native speakers, and even some native speakers, often find very difficult to pronounce. To compile this list I asked my followers on Facebook and Instagram which words they found the most difficult to say in English.
These words include: hierarchical, clothes and miscellaneous.
I show you how to pronounce them, and also tell you how you can "cheat" if you find them too hard to say.
English subtitles are available!

10 Most Difficult Words to Say
They are tough ones. If you pronounce the Ts like a CH in "literature" (something like "LICHRACHA") you might find it easier! You won't see that in dictionaries, but it's how lots of people pronounce it ;).
This is Shariq from india as I don't have anyone to communicate in english to improve of mine so if u can communicate with help of net as via social Media for a while in a day that will be very helpful for me.
Hoping you will communicate with me .
Hi! They're both simple past forms and past participles of "learn". In other words, they mean exactly the same thing. "Learnt" is more common in the UK than in the US.
Note: "learned" can also be an adjective meaning "very knowledgeable", but we don't use "learnt" in that way.
I hope that helps!

No, I think Frank is fine, but lots of koalas have chlamydia... I read about it, and normally it's only a problem for the koala if it becomes stressed (losing its habitat, fire, etc.).
Hmmm... I thought koalas got yeast infections. Are you sure they're not yeast infections? lmao😂😂😁😅😅
Anyway...very helpful video, miss. Please do more about different pronunciations.😊
Ooh...and pls do correct what I wrote above.
Hi Max. An important question. Are people in your country as beautiful as you are?......No...wait. Aaahh, The main question is, What type of English do you recommend that I learn to speak first, American, Australian or British?. All of them have different pronunciations. P..S. You can answer the first question if you like...........pleeeeaaaaassseeee!. Greetings!
Haha, thank you for your compliments.
It would depend what you need English for and whom you're mainly going to be communicating with. If it's mainly Americans, then I would choose the American accent. In some ways it's also easier. But if you live/travel in Europe, the British option might be better. Another factor is preference - which one do you like the most? In any case, as long as you don't learn a strong regional accent, native speakers will understand you no matter which one you choose!
It's interesting. I've been watching your videos for some time and one of the aspects about them that I've found most intriguing is when you do British pronunciations versus American pronunciations. Often times, after your American pronunciations, I end up saying the same word out loud to myself in a comparison of accuracy. And as an American, I have to say that your emulation of the accent is perfectly precise. A precision worthy of some accolade, at least! Great job!! =) Have a very Merry Christmas and an most exceptional new year!
It's lovely to hear that from an American! Thank you very much. When I watch the film back after recording I often feel I've exaggerated it... But I suppose I'm not auditioning for a movie!
Thanks very much - a very Merry Christmas to you too and thank you for your ongoing support!
Loved it !. While preparing the IELTS test I find more and more evidences that pronunciation is actually the most difficult part ! Since I speak spanish, (vowels never change the sound) I find difficult the arbitrary variation of the vowel sounds, and the lack of "clear" rules. Spanish is more direct in that matter, what you see written is what you pronounce. In English, what you see written you first check it in wordreference, thefreedictinary, and some youtube videos; then practice it fifty time and when it comes to use it you probably forgot all the practice and pronounce it wrong !! :lol:
I enjoyed this video and I could pronounce all these words correctly even though I'm not a great English speaker Yeahhh !! And by the way I really like your new style and your star earrings, looks good on you 😊 I like also and appreciate your funny way of teaching English ! Prend bien soin de toi chère Max 😊
Max, You got some of my Achilles' heel - Clothes and sixth. This ordinal number I've just practiced before watching your video.
About the 10th 'Congratulations' - I think for Brazilians, it’s quite simple to pronounce. By the way, congrats for your amazing job. I'll share this video with my pupils. Take care.
