Tongue twisters to try

Tongue twisters are sentences or groups of words that are difficult to say.  They exercise a person’s speech ability and help to improve pronunciation and fluency.  Incorporate Tongue Twisters as a regular game in the family to help your children improve their diction and eloquence.

Start off slowly by concentrating on pronouncing each word properly and then after a few times of saying it well then see if you can increase your speed. Say it as fast as you can over and over again with the most accuracy possible.
