Tongue twisters can be effectively employed to improve pronunciation. Vernacular language speakers are not generally good with tongue twister or not fond of them. It can be very effective strategy in improving vowel and consonant sounds. A word of caution, as this may not work with all students.
How do you say a tongue twister correctly? There are two rules.
# First, tongue twisters must be said fast. You can say any tongue twister without stumbling if you say it slow enough. The trick is to say it fast – the faster the better.
# Second, tongue twisters need to be repeated a certain number of times. If the tongue twister is several sentences long – let’s say, the size of a paragraph – you only need to say it once in order to succeed. If the tongue twister is less than a sentence long, say it at least three times.
