Tongue twisters

Tongue twisters are a funny and motivating way to practise pronunciation. Read the following rhymes at a slow pace, and then faster and faster. A good idea is to record yourself while saying the following rhymes/twisters and then listen to the recording in order to verify the correctness of pronunciation and correct any errors. Tongue twisters are actually a universal game that all people play regardless of language.
Good Luck!

She sells sea-shells by the sea shore.

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 Peter Piper picked?

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
A woodchuck would chuck many chunks of wood
if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

The hardest tongue-twister in the English language according to Guinness World Records is supposedly:

The sixth sick sheikh’s sixth sheep’s sick.

And last but not least,
here is Hank who proves that he can think too much about ANYTHING by thinking too much about Tongue Twisters.

If you know any other fascinating rhymes/twisters – feel free to comment and share them with others.
