Most difficult French words for Americans

The French language is far from easy and one of the most difficult aspects for new learners of the language is pronunciation. Some words just don’t come out correctly. Ever.

You can make yourself understood with bad grammar and other mistakes, but if no one can understand the word you’re trying to get out? Yeahhhh, that’s not fun. It is funny though — after you’ve had time to reflect over two three glasses of wine.
