For fun, sometimes our German clients enjoy testing our German with Zungenbrecher. In English these are called tongue twisters.
Here are a few of the most famous English tongue twisters for you to try.
1. She sells seashells by the seashore.
2. Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked.
If Peter Piper picked a peck of picked peppers,
where’s the peck of pickled peppers that Peter Piper picked?
3. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if the 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.
