Remember reciting she sells seashells on the seashore repeatedly when you were young? That’s a Tongue Twister! It is a sequence of words or sounds, typically of an alliterative kind, that are difficult to pronounce quickly and correctly! Fun right? But it is more than just fun.

For years, children's tongue twisters have entertained them and adults! They can help you improve your speaking skills and expand your vocabulary of interesting words. Children's speech and diction develop at an early age, and tongue twisters can help them stretch the muscles required for communication, improved memory and speaking clearly.

In this week’s Language Fun post, we bring you 5 tongue twisters examples for your next tongue twisters game! Some are easy short tongue twisters for kids and others are more challenging! Ready to be tongue tied?

  1. Let’s start with an easy one and everyone’s favourite - Woodchuck
    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.

    If one doctor doctors another doctor,
    Then which doctor is doctoring the doctored doctor?

  4. Thoughts are complicated sometimes, so is this tongue twister called Thoughts. The name may be simple but don’t be fooled!
    I thought a thought

    I wouldn’t have thought I thought.
