A good way to get children to practise English is using tongue twisters- they're fun and challenging to learn. They also encourage practise in pronunciation and confidence!
"I saw Susie sitting in a shoe shine shop. Where she sits she shines, and where she shines she sits"
"I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!"
"A big black bug bit a big black dog on his big black nose!"
"The thirty-three thieves thought that they thrilled the throne throughout Thursday"
"I wish to wish the wish you wish to wish, but if you wish the wish the witch wishes, I won't wish the wish you wish to wish"
"There was a fisherman named Fisher
who fished for some fish in a fissure.
Till a fish with a grin,
pulled the fisherman in.
Now they're fishing the fissure for Fisher."
The website offers tongue twisters in 107 different languages. See our PML section and our ML section for more samples.
