        Hi Alex, how’ve you been?

        Today I watched one of your lessons about “Music Idioms”, very interesting by the way.

        At the end of the video you mentioned your full name, but I didn’t quite get your last name; is it Mackarthur? Please correct me if I’m wrong.

        Thanks for all these great lessons.

        Take care! Bye for now.

    ok but you help me frist

    Thursday, October 9th 2014

    It was a great idea Alex to develop a lesson on tongue twisters. As you well put it, they help you improve your pronunciation.

    Apart from that, they make you aware -to some good extent- of the English sound system.

    Frankly speaking, it will take some doing to master some of the tongue twisters from the resouce list. It is a good support for future reference, though.

    Thanks a lot Alex

Hi, Alex! We also have tongue twisters in Japanese. Even I can’t say them well in Japanese, saying them in English is more difficult! But I think they are very important to improve my pronunciation. Thank you for your useful lesson.

Nice video :). I know a bit longer version of the one with the shells, though. It goes:”She sells seashells by the seashore. The seashells that she sells are sea shells I´m sure.”

    That’s definitely more difficult, but it’s fun to say!

For those who’s still afraid of practicing those twisters: don’t be afraid! Even if they’d twist your tongue they wouldn’t damage your fingers, and your keyboard would be available for communication anyway! :-)
