What is tongue twister?
A formula of sequence of words difficult to pronounce without blundering.
                                                                         [The Chambers Dictionary]

A tongue-twister is a phrase that is designed to be difficult to articulate properly, and can be used as a type of spoken (or sung) word game.

Now we have understood the meaning of tongue twister. Now, let try this one..=)

Where she sits she shines, and where she shines she sits.

These are the tongue twister that my group need to present and teach them to the other friends. Though the tongue twister look simple and easy but never judge a book by its cover, ok! It was a challenge since to pronounce /s/ and /sh/, it was a bit tricky as we can easily to slip in pronouncing the words.

Thus, to overcome it, my group had practiced the tongue twister a thousand times until we were satisfied and we end up to find out the beat for the tongue twister which end up it sounded really nice. Besides, to make it much easier we had chunk the words and it really help to pronounce them correctly and clearly. We were really excited and glad that we can make it. Yippie! =)

Now, I will give you all a few examples of tongue twister. Try to say it out properly and clearly. Can you say them out quickly? Which are the most difficlt and challenging one?
Good Luck & Enjoys! ^_^

There was a fisherman named Fisher
who fished for some fish in a fissure.
Till a fish with a grin,
pulled the fisherman in.
Now they're fishing the fissure for Fisher.

Through three cheese trees three free fleas flew.
While these fleas flew, freezy breeze blew.
Freezy breeze made these three trees freeze.
Freezy trees made these trees' cheese freeze.
That's what made these three free fleas sneeze.

"Little Mabel blew a bubble, and it caused a lot of trouble...
Such a lot of bubble trouble in a bibble-bobble way.
For it broke away from Mabel as it bobbed across the table,
where it bobbled over Baby and it wafted him away."
