Tongue Twisters Worksheet: How Fast Can You Say It?

Last Updated: May 16, 2018

Tongue Twisters Worksheet

Tongue twisters are an effortless way to challenge students at pronunciation. The nice thing is that they have so much fun doing it that they don’t even notice they are speaking English.

I like to start this class by doing a tongue twister in their native language. If I mess up, it gets students laughing. But nothing to worry about because mistakes are OK. Point proven!

First, practice the tongue twister with “repeat after me” style drills. Next, have students practice in pairs, but don’t give them too much time. Finally, open the classroom up for volunteers for who can say the tongue twister the fastest.

You might be surprised to see the most shy student in class get in the action! They’re challenging themselves to speak faster. And they are having fun doing it. This is a good recipe for success.
