Game #9: Tongue Twisters from A-Z


Tongue twisters are sentences that use many words with the same sound. A common tongue twister is "She sells seashells by the seashore." Say it quickly a few times in a row. The "s" sound is difficult for some learners.

Tongue twisters are useful for English learners for two reasons:
1. You can learn new words.
2. You can practise your pronunciation.

Let's play a tongue twister game together. We will try to get through the whole alphabet, from A-Z! When we are done I will post all of the tongue twisters for MyEC members to try. (We may have to work together to make them grammatically correct. They don't necessarily have to make sense, though.)

How to Play:
1) I will write 5 words starting with the letter "A".
2) The first player to arrive will write a tongue twister using those five words.
3) After writing the tongue twister the first player will write five "B" words for the second player. The second player will write the B tongue twister AND leave 5 "C" words for the third player...
4) Try all of the tongue twisters that came before yours. Read them out loud quickly!

Note for advanced learners: When writing the letter list try to use words other learners may not know. Use at least one noun, one verb, and one adjective.
A: awesome, advantage, accused, alert, aardvark

Player 2:
"The awesome aardvark tried to stay alert after he was accused of taking advantage of innocent animals.
B: bask, basket, beast, brave, blaze
Let's begin! Here are the words for A: acorn, affectionate, anteater, acidic, activate

Who will be the first player?

When he lost his leg and was left all a hopeless lame ,he was given a great deal of latitude to lean on anyone he pointed at and lash whatever lamp he wanted....
