Try this tongue twister to improve English - 07-08-2009, 12:38 AM

I think one of the best way to improve your spoken english is to try out more tongue twister. Dont worry, even native English speakers find the tongue-twisters on this page difficult to say quickly. Anyway, have a go...

Click > How much wood can Chuck woods
Click > Shirley Sherman shivered
Click > Big bear bit
Click > Duck likes lakes
Click > Seashells sells
Click > Pot roast roast
Click > Say it 3 times in a row
Click > Peter piper picks a peck
Click > Denise sees the fleece
Click > Shoe shine shop
Click > I wish to wish the wish you wish

These seem to be lengthened versions of the ones I have known since the 1950s. They are good practice, except that many would give up in frustration over just following the meaning of these longer ones.

The shorter versions are equally effective when practiced more, though the repetition could get boring.

"How much wood would a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?" was always a my favorite. But this being the first time I think I have ever typed it, I have discovered it is far more difficult to type than to say.

Only an open mind and open heart can be filled with life.
Find your voice; silence will not protect you.

i wish the 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

betty bought some butter,but the butter was bitter,so she bought some better butter to make the bitter butter better

and i also have one humourous:
flea says to fly,let's flee;fly says to flea,let's fly

in fact,i think english tongue-twister is not hard to read
