..was my very first time let's-try-to-tackle tricksy tongue twister taught by my thoughtful teacher, Miss Ooi Joo Lin - my primary English teacher. Thank you teacher!

Described as the hardest tongue twister in the English language, my tuition teacher, Mr. Taqi once had the class recite the tongue twister -
: : The sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick : :
Taqi's tempting tongue twister truly tangled my tongue!

Enjoy a few other fave tongue twisters of mine!

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
If a woodchuck could chuck wood?
He would chuck, he would, as much as he could,
And chuck as much wood as a woodchuck would
If a woodchuck could chuck wood.

How many cans can a canner can if a canner can can cans?
A canner can can as many cans as a canner can if a canner can can cans.

A big black bug bit a big black bear, made the big black bear bleed blood.

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
Did Peter Piper pick a peck of pickled peppers?
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought some butter, but the butter Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought was bitter. So Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought some better butter to make the bitter butter Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought better. But instead of the better butter Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought making the bitter butter Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought better, the bitter butter Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought made the better butter Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought bitter!

Get the full effect of tongue twisters with repetition, as quickly as possible, without stumbling or mispronouncing. Practice makes perfect!
