25 City Names You Have Mispronounced Your Whole Life
I’m pretty sure that everyone hates to be uninformed (well.. the people I hang out with)…

One of the most embarrassing things to do is to mispronounce the name of the place you visit when talking about your expeditions to people.  A lot of us.. have at some point said something the wrong way and it sucks to be uninformed or just ignorant.

Spellings can be pretty deceitful… I remember visiting England years ago and having to learn that Woolwich, which is a district in South London was actually pronounced as “WOO-LITCH”.

Interesting right!!..

Anyways.. If you’re like me (well.. not really) and almost the entire world, chances are you’ve been pronouncing some country and city names the wrong way all your life. Luckily for you, the cool guys at Thrillophilia have created the images below solely for the purpose of putting an end to mispronunciation once and for all.
