Recently, weatherman Liam Dutton handled his job like a boss. When he had to talk about the warmest place in Wales, he was faced with a monster 58-letter long name: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. Dutton didn’t even flinch when he had to pronounce the consonant-filled word. The Daily Mail reports that Dutton learned Welsh as a kid, but that doesn’t make this moment any less impressive. I speak Spanish, and I still struggle to say some words in no-pressure situations.
In honor of Dutton and so that you can test out your own skills, here are six Latin American places with hard-to-pronounce names:
Iztaccíhuatl in México
There’s an L sound you may miss.
Fusagasugá in Colombia
It’s not so hard to pronounce, but all the Gs and Ss make for a confusing name.
Paraitepuy de Roraima in Venezuela
At the very least, it’ll slow you down.
Goiânia in Brazil
This can be an intimidating word if you don’t speak Portuguese.
Cuautlancingo in Mexico
This definitely doesn’t just roll off the tongue for everyone.
Rurrenabaque in Bolivia
Rs are tricky.
