Hello people!

Well, I know that a person who is learning English needs to speak to learn more. So I brought some tongue-twisters to help you. Tongue-Twister "is a phrase that is designed to be difficult to articulate properly and can be used as a type of spoken (or sung) word game" (wikipedia), it is hard to speak fast, that is, it is funny!
Read these phrases aloud, please:

Can you can a can in a can?

She sells sea-shells by the sea shore.

Sheena leads, Sheila needs.

Six sick hicks nick six slick bricks with picks and sticks.

Six slippery snails slid slowly seaward.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.

Once a fellow met a fellow
In a field of beans
Said a fellow to a fellow
"If a fellow asks a fellow,
Can a fellow tell a fellow
What a fellow means?"

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepers
A peck of pickled pepers Peter Piper pecked
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepers,
Where's the peck of pickled pepers Peter Piper picked?

Dr, Johnson and Mr. Johnson,
After great consideration,
Came to the conclusion
That the Indian nation
Beyond the Indian Ocean
Is back in education
Because the chief occupation is cultivation.

A flea and a Fly in a flue
Said the fly: "Oh, what should we do?"
Said the flea: "Let us fly!"
Said the fly: "Let us flee!"
So they flew through a flaw in the flue.

How much pot could a pot roast roast if a pot roast could roast pot?

Mr. Tongue Twister tried to train his tongue to twist and turn, and twit an twat, to learn the letter "T".

Who washed Washington's white woolen underwear when Washington's washer woman went West?

That's all for now. On another post, I'll bring more tongue-twisters.

See you!
