Mine is "maintenant" (now). When I try to say it, I always end up mumbling with my nose. It's very annoying, since it's a very common word :/

Which is yours?

Try to say it in English ! Man to no as fast as you can pronouce it .. it's sounds like if you say it in French: "Maintenant". Good luck !

Européen is a word that I had to practice quite a bit (along with every word that has a similar pronunciation).
Now, there are other words that need special attention, but I can't think of them, at the moment.
