You’re Probably Mispronouncing These City Names

By Zack Stieber

Some city names are simple to pronounce but others can be much more difficult.

That’s especially the case when people travel as foreign pronunciations can turn what seems like a simple name into a hard one to say correctly.

Take one example: Versailles, France. Looking at it, it seems simple to pronounce. But in the video above, we learn that it’s actually pronounced “VER-SIGH,” as opposed to, say, pronouncing the two “Ls” as one would in English.

There are a number of other popular city names that are easy to mispronounce. Check them out in the video above.
