Hello Slip,


Thank you for your comment. Yes these are common words, but some learners do struggle with their pronunciations.

Wow. What an insane list. These are all just normal words. If someone can't pronounce “去” correctly, then they can't pronounce any word correctly.


I would like to know who came up with this list and how they determined they were the "hardest to pronounce."

I really struggle with a few of these.

It would be great to know where to place your tongue when saying these words?

Thanks for the help in learning this beautiful language :)
