Tricky Tongue Twisters for Talented Talkers to Try


Thank you to all of the English learners and teachers who participated in Game #9. Here are all of the tongue twisters we wrote from A-Z!

We need your help: Will anyone record these for us and upload them to a MyEC audio player or YouTube? Maybe you could draw a picture of one of them and scan it for us. We need to bring these tongue twister to life! Of course, the best way to do that is to try them out. Happy twisting!
