Tongue Twisters

Tongue twisters are a fun and easy way to improve your pronunciation, fluency, and clarity, while warming up your vocal instrument for public speaking. The following are some classics for your practice and enjoyment.

Red leather, yellow leather

The lips, the teeth, the tip of the tongue
the tip of the tongue, the teeth, the lips

A box of biscuits
A box of mixed biscuits
And a biscuit mixer

Around the rugged rocks
the ragged rascals ran

Six thick sticks were thinned
Then six thin sticks turned thick

Peter wanted pickles
Popper wanted pepper
Peter picked pepper
Popper picked pickles

Imagine an imaginary menagerie manager
imagining managing an imaginary menagerie

Girls of the world twirl in a swirl of curls

Flounder loves to flaunt
the flora and fauna
found in her family fountain
while eating some freshly fried
French fries and fishes

You know New York, you need New York
You know you need unique New York

The night lacks light
She struggled with sight
Light a night light
but the light was slight
