Tongue Twister

⭕ Tongue Twister ⭕

⭕ There are so many aspects of learning a second language, including important areas like writing skills, comprehension, vocabulary building and lots more. If you’re learning English, pronunciation is surely one of the skills you want to improve. Tongue twisters are a great way to practice and improve pronunciation and fluency. They can also help to improve accents by using alliteration, which is the repetition of one sound.

⭕ It’s true that practice makes perfect, but many students are looking for fun and unique ways to work on their pronunciation skills, besides the usual exercises. Few students consider using tongue twisters. You may feel a little weird or even amused while doing some of these tongue twisters, but the more you practice them, the easier and rewarding it will become.

⭕ These fun, short sayings are common expressions in the English language. They use repetitive letters and sounds to create a complex sentence that can be hard to say, hence the name “tongue twisters.”

⭕ Tongue twisters are phrases or sentences that are designed to be difficult to say correctly. They are a great way of learning how to shape your mouth and position your tongue correctly. It’s very difficult to say tongue twisters in English so don’t worry if you can’t do it very well at first.

⭕ Even native English speakers can find them difficult. Practice saying tongue twisters out loud. Instead of concentrating on the speed, try saying them slowly and correctly. And best of all, they’re fun! Here is a list to get you started on this fun English pronunciation exercise:

Listen to these tongue twisters, and practise saying them out loud.

I scream you scream

⭕ I scream you scream we all scream for ice cream.

Listen to the tongue twister and practise saying it. How fast can you say it?

⭕ She sells sea shells by the sea shore.

Bye Bye

⭕ If you want to buy, buy, if you don’t want to buy, bye bye!

Copyright

⭕ When you write copy you have the right to copyright the copy you write.

Listen to the tongue twister and practise saying it. How fast can you say it?

Two witches

⭕ If two witches were watching two watches, which witch would watch which watch?

 I thought a thought. But the thought I thought wasn’t the thought I thought I thought. If the thought I thought I thought had been the thought I thought, I wouldn’t have thought so much.

⭕ One-One was a racehorse. Two-Two was one, too. When One-One won one race, Two-Two won one, too.

⭕ I wish I were what I was when I wished I were what I am. 

⭕ No need to light a night light on a light night like tonight. 

⭕ I wish to wish the wish you wish to wish, but if you wish the wish the witch wishes, I won’t wish the wish you wish to wish.

⭕ I read that the “The sixth sick Sheik’s sixth sheep is sick” holds the Guinness record as the world’s hardest tongue twister but I recently found this one the most difficult: “There are two minutes difference from four to two to two to two, from two to two to two, too.”

⭕ Did you have fun? Did your tongue get twisted? There are a lot of tongue twisters. Maybe I’ll do more on an other post if you like this one.
