Tongue Twisters

Tongue Twisters are phrases that are designed to be difficult to articulate properly, and can be used as a type of spoken word game. French Tongue twisters are a great way to practice and improve pronunciation and fluency in French. Some tongue-t wisters produce results that are humorous when they are mispronounced, while others simply rely on the confusion and mistakes of the speaker for their amusement value. They’re not just for kids, but are also used by actors, politicians, and public speakers who want to sound clear when speaking. Enjoy these Tongue T wisters!
