Very interesting question.
Actually I think it all depends on your native language.
Here are Some of My hardest words (I’m french) :
It always involves the TH sound.

You likely have difficulty with words that include the letter ”r” because in your native language (assuming Portuguese), you roll or ”l” your letter ”r”; English does not (exception: Certain high-minded ”British” speakers who wish to affect a certain ”high class” status, e.g., the UK’s (so-called) royal family members. It’s bullshit.
VeniVidiVici21 weeks agoAs an English native, i have to say i have never once heard an Englishman roll the letter ”r”. The Royal family do not roll their R’s at all, however they do speak ”proper english” ; which basically means no slang words!

Amusing question. 😂 Everyone, even native speakers have such words.
I personally find exceedingly long words difficult (well, more like tongue twisters). For example: "pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis." I'm not going to try to pronounce that! 😁 Nonetheless, it's amusing to try pronouncing tough words...
Ps: You could use it as a party game. 😉
