Tongue Twisters for fun and to improve your English pronunciation

A tongue-twister is a sequence of words that is difficult to pronounce quickly and correctly. This is a great way to practice and improve pronunciation and fluency. It can also help to improve accents by using alliteration, which is the repetition of one sound. These are not just for kids but are also used by actors, politicians, and public speakers who want to sound clear when speaking. Try them yourself. Try to say them as fast as possible, but correctly!
