Tongue Twisters 绕口令

Could you please make a programme on tongue twisters? I think it would be useful for the audience to practise pronunciation. Thank you.

Fei, Macau

In today’s programme, Helen Hu and Feifei Feng bring you some of the most well-known tongue twisters in English.

Tongue twisters are great fun. This is one of the few types of wordplay that exists in every language.

And for language learners, they’re perfect for practising pronunciation and impressing others.

They are also challenging for native speakers too, as you will find out.
