Fun with English
« on: January 03, 2016, 12:20:38 AM »
If you know someone just learning English (and especially if they are non-Europeans), have them read the following sentence:

He had a rough cough after he couldn't come through with the dough to pay for the bough in the trough.


Pronunciation guide for those who need help:
cough
[kof]

through
[throo]

rough
[ruhf]

dough
[doh]
 
bough
[bou]

trough
[trawf]
