The "little Czech matchbox" tongue twister

[deactivated user]

    Hallo Leute,

    A bit of fun with pronunciation.

    This is considered one of the hardest word combinations to pronounce in German. It goes something like this:

    tschechisches Streichholzschächtelchen

    In this video, Herr Antrim an American German teacher, asks for help from the most well known YouTube German native teachers and of course they make it sound... somewhat easy.


    So, will non-natives have a go at the word?

    For German natives, are you able to say that without much trouble? Can you think on an even harder mouthful?

    As as bonus you get to know the best German teachers on YouTube, some of which I've already made post about a while ago.

    Love it :D. There are also nice things like "Fischers Fritz fischt frische Fische", "Uniroyal Regenreifen", "Der Whiskymixer mixt den Whisky", "Brautkleid bleibt Brautkleid und Blaukraut bleibt Blaukraut". The latter is even tricking me as a native speaker :D.....


    For me, it doesn't seem to be so hard to pronounce. The problem is the big word Streichholzschächtelchen. I simply can't read it at once.
