The Poem to test your English skills.

Hello, try reading the below poem and if you are able to pronounce all the similar words then you sure do have a good grasp of the language.


        by Dr. Gerard Nolst Trenité
         (Netherlands, 1870-1946)

         Dearest creature in creation,
         Study English pronunciation.
         I will teach you in my verse
         Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.
         I will keep you, Suzy, busy,
         Make your head with heat grow dizzy.
         Tear in eye, your dress will tear.
         So shall I!  Oh hear my prayer.
         Pray, console your loving poet,
         Make my coat look new, dear, sew it! 

         Just compare heart, beard, and heard,
         Dies and diet, lord and word,
         Sword and sward, retain and Britain.
         (Mind the latter, how it's written.)
         Now I surely will not plague you
         With such words as plaque and ague.
         But be careful how you speak:
         Say break and steak, but bleak and streak;
         Cloven, oven, how and low,
         Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe.
         Hear me say, devoid of trickery,
         Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore,
         Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles,
         Exiles, similes, and reviles;
         Scholar, vicar, and cigar,
         Solar, mica, war and far;
         One, anemone, Balmoral,
         Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel;
         Gertrude, German, wind and mind,
         Scene, Melpomene, mankind.
         Billet does not rhyme with ballet,
         Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet.
         Blood and flood are not like food,
         Nor is mould like should and would.
         Viscous, viscount, load and broad,
         Toward, to forward, to reward.
         And your pronunciation's OK
         When you correctly say croquet,
         Rounded, wounded, grieve and sieve,
         Friend and fiend, alive and live.
         Ivy, privy, famous; clamour
         And enamour rhyme with hammer.
         River, rival, tomb, bomb, comb,
         Doll and roll and some and home.
         Stranger does not rhyme with anger,
         Neither does devour with clangour.
         Souls but foul, haunt but aunt,
         Font, front, wont, want, grand, and grant,"
