English Tongue-Twisters

A tongue-twister is a phrase that is difficult to say correctly.  The words ‘twist’ your tongue in circles! They usually use similar sounds like s- and sh-.

The English tongue-twister that people feel is the hardest to say is ‘the sixth sick sheikh’s sixth sheep’s sick‘. Even your teachers cannot say it properly!

Popular ones are:

• She sells seashells by the seashore.

• Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.

• How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck would chuck wood?

• Which wristwatches are Swiss wristwatches?

See  if you can say them!
