    Tongue Twisters

    I am a keen language learner and I enjoy using tongue twisters to practise pronunciation.

    I made a video on YouTube to help my friends learning British English pronunciation:

    All feedback gratefully received!

    Re: Tongue Twisters

    I can't watch video at the moment so I hope this one hasn't already been covered in one of those videos. My favourite tongue twister is:

    Theo Thistler was a thistle sifter. He sifted a sieve of unsifted thistles into a sieve of sifted thistles. Then he sifted a sieve of sifted thistles into a sieve of unsifted thistles - because Theo Thistler was a thistle sifter.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Here's one I can't even say slowly:

    The sixth sheikh's sixth sheep's sick.
