Tongue Twisters

What is a tongue twister?

It is a series of words or sounds that are usually repetitive and are difficult to pronounce quickly and correctly. Most English language teachers use tongue twisters to develop the students pronunciation and accent. Sometimes, we use tongue twisters just for the sheer fun of doing it. I often get my students to memorize this and ask them to say it out loud in class as a group and in pairs.

There are only two rules that apply. First, say the tongue twisters fast. It is easy to say the tongue twister when you say it slowly. So the challenge is to say it as fast as you can. Second, repeat the tongue twister a certain number of times. For longer sentences the size of a paragraph, you may only say it once but fast! Words and phrasal tongue twisters can be repeated 3-5 times.
