Basically, a tongue twister is a short sentence that repeats the same sound several times, which can be challenging for anyone to say. We learn them when we're young because they're often funny to say, but they're also really helpful when we're learning a language.
For example, if you find the sounds /r/ and /l/ hard to say, try saying this tongue twister quickly: "Red lorry, yellow lorry". Now say it faster many times!
This series of video lessons will give you examples of popular tongue twisters to help you practise the most challenging sounds in English. Listen to them slowly, then try to repeat them. Start slowly, then try to speed up. Good luck!
