Hi, everybody! I am Georgiana, your English teacher and founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help you speak English fluently.

Ok, let’s start!

Last week we started this accent reduction exercise by focusing on the S sound with the help of some fun tongue twisters.

So, let’s remember the tongue twisters we used last week to help you improve your English pronunciation.

I will go fast, but if you want to practice them, you can do so by listening to the previous episode on my website.

Listen and repeat:

#1 I saw Esau kissing Kate. I saw Esau, he saw me, and she saw I saw Esau.
#2 Santa’s Short Suit Shrunk.
#3 You cuss, I cuss, we all cuss for asparagus.
#4 Thin sticks, thick bricks.
#5 Systematically assisting Sisyphus’s stealthy cyst-susceptible sister.
 

I hope you’re having fun. 

Let’s practice with new tongue twisters.

Are you ready? Let’s go!

I will start saying each tongue twister slowly, and then I will go faster.

At first, they may seem very difficult, so make sure you have the text in front of you to be able to follow it better.

Ok. So, I will say it very slowly:

1. She saw Sharif’s shoes on the sofa. But was she so sure those were Sharif’s shoes she saw?

Now I will say it faster.

She saw Sharif’s shoes on the sofa. But was she so sure those were Sharif’s shoes she saw?

Ok. Even faster!

She saw Sharif’s shoes on the sofa. But was she so sure those were Sharif’s shoes she saw?

Let’s continue!

2) The chic Sikh’s sixty-sixth sheep is sick.

Let’s say it faster!

The chic Sikh’s sixty-sixth sheep is sick.

Even faster!

The chic Sikh’s sixty-sixth sheep is sick.

3) There’s a pessimistic pest amidst us.

Ok. Say it faster!

There’s a pessimistic pest amidst us.

Even faster!

There’s a pessimistic pest amidst us.

4) Which witch switched the Swiss wristwatches?

Say it faster!

Which witch switched the Swiss wristwatches?

Can you say it faster?

Which witch switched the Swiss wristwatches?

5) She sells seashells by the seashore.

Let’s say it faster!

She sells seashells by the seashore.

Even faster!

She sells seashells by the seashore.

Well, that’s all for now; I hope you had fun practicing your English pronunciation and you didn’t get tongue-tied like Smith. We’ll see what happened to him and why he was crowned king.
