Here’s a very well-known tongue twister:
“She sells seashells on the sea shore.
The shells she sells are seashells, I’m sure.
For if she sells seashells on the sea shore
Then I’m sure she sells sea-shore shells.”
I’ve never managed to get through this one without making a mistake!
Tongue twisters are good if you want to practise your pronunciation.
Give this one a try:
“If a dog chews shoes, whose shoes does he choose?”
to chew = kauen, zerkauen
“Few women admit their age. Few men act theirs.”
Just for fun!
This tongue twister looks SO easy, but try to get your tongue around it. Say the sentence out loud three times.
I needed to practise this quite a bit before it worked! 😉
“Good blood, bad blood.”
Try and get your tongue around this one here …
“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.”
Now that’s quite a mouthful, isn’t it?
