Transcript:

Hi, everybody! I’m Georgiana, founder of speakenglishpodcast.com. My mission is to help you to speak English fluently. Speaking English is way easier when you use the right material and techniques.

In this episode, I’ll introduce you to some new tongue twisters. It’s not the first time I’m talking about tongue twisters. I’ve done two episodes in the past, so if you want to listen to them, look for episodes #083 and #087.

And with a mini-story, you will improve your fluency in English by answering questions, like in a real conversation.

Remember that you can get the text of this episode at speakenglishpodcast.com.

Before I start talking about tongue twisters, let me thank you for listening to my podcast.

I would like to start 2020 by thanking everyone for listening and for supporting my program by sharing it on social media with your friends and families. Thank you, everyone!

Ok. Let’s get started!

So, do you remember what a tongue twister is?

It can be a difficult phrase or sentence that we say quickly, usually because of a sequence of almost similar sounds. 

For example, “Peter Piper picked a pickle of pickled peppers.” By the way, if you want to learn Peter Piper’s tongue twister, be sure to listen to episode #083.

Although children find them entertaining, tongue twisters are used by people who want to speak clearly, including actors, politicians, etc.

Tongue twisters allow us to practice pronunciation and agility when producing sounds in the language, and that’s why I’ve decided to share some more examples with you.

Are you ready?

Let’s go!

I’ll start saying each tongue twister slowly, and then I’ll go faster. 

You will see that at first, they can seem very difficult. But don’t worry about it. Just make sure to have the text in front of you so that you can follow it better.

Let’s start!

Ok. So I will say it very slowly:


1) I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. 

Again!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.

Are you ready to speed it up?

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.

Again!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.
