About Our Tongue Twisters Worksheets

“She sells sea shells by the seashore!” “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers!” And the ever-famous, “Toy boat! Toy boat! Toy boat!” Ahh, tongue twisters - we all know ‘em, and we either love ‘em or hate ‘em. But for your ESL students, tongue twisters can provide a break from the repetition of board work - and give them an introduction to some of the silly ways we native speakers play with our language.

Tongue twisters certainly aren’t an essential part of English - and many textbooks just ignore them altogether. So why bring them into your classroom at all? Because they’re fun, of course! They’re a breath of fresh air in pronunciation and grammar practice - and they can even help students distinguish between similar sounds, so their diction becomes clearer and more precise. Plus, they’re great for students to share with their friends.

Whether your class consists of level-one ESL beginners or advanced level-five students, BusyTeacher.org’s 34 tongue twister worksheets are sure to please. From simple exercises with similar-sounding words all the way to English puns and poems, these worksheets will have your students trying their tongue-twisters, cracking up as they stumble, and challenging each other to do better. And that laugh factor makes these worksheets great for warmers and ice-breakers, too.

Some of BusyTeacher.org’s 34 tongue twister worksheets even focus on specific themes, like holidays or certain English letters - which is handy if you’re working through a theme unit. But no matter when in your class you choose to introduce these exercises, they’ll loosen students up, and show them that ESL learning isn’t just all about rigid rules. When you try out some of these tongue twisters yourself, in front of your class, they’ll see that even native speakers can get tangled up in English sometimes.
