Jamie, formateur d’anglais au centre de l’Académie des Langues de Caen, 26 rue d’Authie, vous propose les chaussettes de l’archi-duchesse

A tongue-twister is a sentence or phrase which is intended to be difficult to say.

Here’s an example:

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers

A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked

If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers

Where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

And another:

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

He would chuck, he would, as much as he could, and chuck as much wood

As a woodchuck would if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

Some tongue-twisters are intended to be repeated. Try saying the examples below 5 times quickly.

An example:

She sells seashells by the seashore.

 

And another:

Red lorry, yellow lorry.

 

And another (be careful not to say a naughty word with this one!):

Susie works in a shoeshine shop. Where she shines she sits, and where she sits she shines.

 

Good luck!
