Today, our top pronunciation tip is to try saying a few of these tongue twisters. A “tongue twister” is a phrase that is difficult to say because the sounds are difficult to pronounce.
Practice this week! Because if anyone can say all of these tongue twisters perfectly at graduation on Friday, there will of course be an edible prize =D
- Red lorry, yellow lorry (x5)
- She sells seashells by the seashore
- Which wristwatches are Swiss wristwatches?
- If a dog chews shoes, whose shoes does he choose?
- How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
He would chuck, he would, as much as he could, and chuck as much wood
As a woodchuck would if a woodchuck could chuck wood
- Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
Where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?
And the official Lexis Byron tongue twister:
7. Peanut Butter Tim Tams (x5)
The TONGUE TWISTER PRIZE will of course be… a packet of Peanut Butter Tim Tams! Good luck!
