Here's an example:
She sells sea-shells on the sea-shore.
The shells she sells are sea-shells, I'm sure.
For if she sells sea-shells on the sea-shore
Then I'm sure she sells sea-shore shells.
This is great to practise the difference between a "s" and a "sh" sound.
How about this one:
Red lorry, yellow lorry, red lorry, yellow lorry.
Repeat it as many times and as fast as you can! Helps with "r" and "l" sounds.
Another popular tongue twister is:
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked.
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, where's the peck of pickled peppers that Peter Piper picked?
Betty Botter had some butter,
"But," she said, "this butter's bitter.
If I bake this bitter butter,
It would make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter,
That would make my batter better."
So she bought a bit of butter –
Better than her bitter butter –
And she baked it in her batter;
And the batter was not bitter.
So 'twas better Betty Botter
Bought a bit of better butter.
This one helps with vowel sounds.
