Tongue twisters are sentences containing alliteration. Alliteration refers to the same phonetic sound repeated at the beginning of each word, for several words.
Tongue Twisters are hard to say because the repetition of the same phonetic sound creates issues with pronunciation and clarity of words.


Native English speakers find great fun in learning tongue twisters because many people turn them into games to see how many people can say them three times, fast.
Practicing tongue twisters allows people who are learning English to strengthen their speech skills. The faster a person can say the tongue twister without slipping up, the stronger their language skills become.

Popular Tongue Twisters
