  • Why is it that most speech can be read out loud quickly with no problem?

  • Why is it that most speech can be read out loud quickly with no problem?

  • Why is that most speech can be read out loud quickly with no problem?

  • Easy.

  • Other word combinations: no way.

  • Forget it.

  • I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch.

  • I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch.

  • I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch.

  • wristwatch-- wristwatch--

  • Tongue twisters.

  • This is a real thing, and it happens in every language.

  • When you put similar sounds together and try to say something quickly or over and over,

  • your brain can't always keep up.

  • Practicing tongue twisters with tricky sounds may help your brain get better at telling

  • your mouth how to make that sound.

  • Let's start with what the Guiness Book of World Records says

  • is the hardest English tongue twister.

  • If this looks intimidating, it's supposed to.

  • TH is one of the hardest sounds for non-native speakers to make and the word sixth is really hard.

  • We have the K-S-TH consonant cluster, ksth, ksth.

  • Break that down with me: Kk, ss, th, kk, ss, th.

  • We don't have to change the mouth position too much: ksth-- ksth--

  • The jaw just drops a little bit more as the tongue makes a small movement through the teeth.

  • Kkssth-- Kkssth--

  • There's a chance you're going to want to practice that cluster on its own.

  • Sixth sick sheikh's sixth sheep sick.

  • Sixth sick sheikh's sixth sheep sick.

  • I have to break it up, it's too hard to do all at once.

  • Sixth sick sheikh's sixth sheep sick.

  • Okay, that's tricky. Let me try a little faster.

  • Sixth sick sheikh's sixth sheep sick.

  • I'm not sure I'm even saying that right.

  • Sixth sick sheikh's sixth sheep sick.

  • Okay when you mess up, slow down.

  • Do this out loud.

  • If your mouth gets in a jumble, just slow it down. That will help.

  • Sixth sick sheikh's sixth sheep sick.

  • This is not a sentence with meaning,

  • not a sentence that's grammatically correct, it's just a string of words

  • that is incredibly hard to say.

  • Practice it to work on your TH sound.

  • Sixth--

  • Sixth sick sheikh's sixth sheep sick.

  • Sixth sick-- Sixth sick-- Sixth sick--

  • Sixth sick sheikh's sixth sheep sick.

  • Sixth sick sheikh's sixth sheep sick.

  • Okay, there we go.

  • She sells sea shells--

  • Yeah. Exactly.

  • She sells sea shells by the sea shore.

  • She sells sea shells by the sea shore.

  • She sells sea shells by the sea shore.

  • She sells sea shells by the sea shore.

  • Okay.

  • This tongue twister is a sentence that does make sense, that is grammatically correct.

  • All the S's and SH's can really get mixed up as you say this quickly.

  • She sells sea shells by the sea shore.

  • She sells sea shells by the sea shore.

  • She sells sea shells by the sea shore.

  • She sells sea shells by the sea shore.

  • She sells sea shells by the sea shore.

  • She sells sea shells by the sea shore.

  • Remember, if you're using tongue twisters to practice the brain-speech connection,

  • slow it down.

  • There's actually a little shortcut here, when you have an ending Z sound and a beginning

  • S sound, like here, you can connect the words with just one S sound: sells sea, sells sea,

  • sells sea, sells sea shells.

  • sells sea shells, sells sea shells.

  • She sells sea shells by the sea shore.

  • Ok, now R is such a hard sound for non-native speakers.

  • Some people make a W instead, so this tongue twister is a real challenge.

  • Do it slowly.

  • I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch.

  • And of course, we have SH, S, CH to get mixed up as well.

  • I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch.

  • I can't even do it slowly!

  • I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch.

  • Man, when you get to 'wristwatch', it really gets hard.

  • I wish to wash my Irish-- I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch.

  • I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch.

  • I wish to wash my Irish wrist-- Irish--

  • I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch.

  • I can't go any faster than that.

  • Practice it out loud with me: I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch.

  • I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch.

  • I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch.

  • There, the more I do it, the easier it gets.

  • If you completely mess these up, don't feel too bad.

  • Here's my family trying to do them.
