With the post of today I want to teach you some Italian tongue-twisters

The Italian tongue-twister is called in Italian: SCIOGLILINGUA that literally means: melting tongue


It is a phrase designed on purpose to be difficult to be pronounced.
Tongue-twisters are often used as an exercise to develop an agile and fluent diction

They are very funny because people often cannot pronounce them very well and it’s hilarious when they say it wrong

Ready to read them?  You should try to read them in a fast way…try and try again, don’t give up!
