wow... i never quite figure why all that writing of unnecessary letters... we Croats are simple... write what you say, say what you write... no double letters, no 'eating' letters, no letters that should be pronounced differently... i think that makes us really easy to learn, just need to put aside all rules that imply in other languages and all goes smoothly

Try 's-Hertogenbosch or 's-Gravezande, that must be very easy

Just a regular Dutch word: angstschreeuw (8 consonants in a row ). It means scream of fear, btw.

"slechtstschrijvend" has 9 in a row, by the way. Good luck with trying
