Tuesday's Tongue Twisters!

Hello everyone,

Pronunciation can be a challenge for second language learners.  A fun lesson to increase accuracy is to practice an assortment of tongue twisters.  Tongue Twisters lower the affective filter of English language learners and kids of all ages love to practice the sing-songy fun of a great tongue twisters.

  • Four furious friends fought for the phone.
  • Green glass globes glow greenly.
  • The sixth sick Sheik's sixth sheep is sick.

Tongue twisters are fun and engaging for young English learners.  They are also culturally significant and native speakers of English are always willing to join in the fun of this challenging practice.

What are some of your hardest tongue twisters?

Happy Teaching!
