There is no better way to improve enunciation than with tongue twisters. If you are a budding young debater, or just want to speak clearly, then these are a must! On this list you can get a tongue twister for nearly every letter of the alphabet. There are too many to list here but you can download the complete list from the above website (free and you don't have to fill out any forms or register, just click on the download section).

Here's an example of some of the tongue twisters you will find on the list:

Betty Botter bought some butter but, said she, the butter's bitter.
If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter it will make my bitter batter better.
So she bought a bit of better butter, and it mad her batter better,
So 'twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter.

A big black bug bit a big black dog on his big black nose!

Five fat friars frying flat fish

Green glass globes glow greenly.

One-One was a racehorse.
Two-Two was one, too.
When One-One won one race,
Two-Two won one, too.

If two witches would watch two watches, which witch would watch which watch?

Mr See owned a saw.
And Mr Soar owned a seesaw.
Now See's saw sawed Soar's seesaw
Before Soar saw See,
Which made Soar sore.
Had Soar seen See's saw
Before See sawed Soar's seesaw,
See's saw would not have sawed
Soar's seesaw.
So See's saw sawed Soar's seesaw.
But it was sad to see Soar so sore
Just because See's saw sawed
Soar's seesaw!
