Tongue twisters in English – part 1

Tongue twisters in English- part 1 -

English tongue twisters are a great way to improve your pronunciation and to get more fluent in English. Sometimes they are very tricky and it needs a lot of time to pronounce them correctly. Tongue twisters are not only used by kids, but also by adults (for example by politicians, actors or public speakers) who want to sound clear when they speak.

Tongue twisters are easier to read than just to repeat them without the written text. Start with these tongue twisters and get more confident:
