TGIF: Tongue twister extraordinaire! May 23, 2014

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff, TGIF.

I tripped over a couple of these. Tough even for native speakers of English. As the source of this tongue twister states: If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world.

Happy weekend (those of us in the U.S. will be off on Monday, giving us a three day weekend).

This was fun to wake up to! I love the cadence of it. This is a great warm up exercise for theatre and a great way to work on rhythm, spelling and of course, pronunciation!

I agree – it took time to read through out loud and was a lot of fun. Interesting to see where I tripped up.

My my… wow, not easy reading through without coming back to read correctly! Thanks for the exercise!

Try reading this poem out loud. If you can get through it without mispronouncing at least one word, your knowledge of English words is better than mine! Thanks for sharing, @bonnjill
