Tongue Twisters 英会話「あぜりあ」本八幡・西船橋・津田沼・佐倉

Tongue Twisters
Many people use tongue twisters as a way to practice and improve their pronunciation. I think tongue twisters are fun but they are also very challenging at times. Usually when practicing tongue twisters it is best to start out at a slow place and as you get a feel for the words you are supposed to go as fast as you can without making a mistake. I can almost guarantee that you will make many mistakes but that is normal and the same goes for most native speakers as well.
You see, the thing that makes these tongue twisters so difficult is “alliteration”. Alliteration is when a series of words in a sentence have the same first letter or the same sound; however every word in the sentence does not have to have the same sound or first letter. Here are some easy examples.
EX: The captain couldn’t keep the men in the cabin.
EX: A paper plane passed over my head

Now let’s take a look at some fun tongue twisters. Please feel free to practice these as much as you can and try making your own!

1. She sells seashells by the seashore.
2. Susie works in a shoeshine shop. Where she shines she sits, and where she sits she shines
3. Rolling red wagons (say this 3times in a row)
4. A skunk sat on a stump and thunk the stump stunk, but the stump thunk the skunk stunk
The next few are some of my favorites:
1. 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

2. 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?
3. Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy, was he
