So You Think French Is Hard?
Try English . . .



UK                                                                France

So You Think French is Hard...

I take it you already know of tough and bough and cough and dough.

Others may stumble but not you, on hiccough, thorough, tough and through.

Well done! And now you wish perhaps to learn of less familiar traps?

Beware of heard, a dreadful word that looks like beard and sounds like bird.

And dead -- it's said like bed, not bead -- For goodness' sake, don't call it deed.

Watch out for meat and great and threat, (they rhyme with suite and straight and debt)

A moth is not a moth in mother, nor both in bother, broth in brother.

And here is not a match for there, nor dear and fear or bear and pear.

And then there's dose and rose and lose, just look them up -- goose and choose

and cork and work and card and ward and front and font, and word and sword,

and do and go, and wart and cart -- Come, come! I've hardly made a start!

A dreadful language? Man alive!

I mastered it when I was five!
