A tongue twister is a phrase, sentence or rhyme that presents difficulties when spoken because it contains similar sounds. To get the full effect of a tongue twister you should try to repeat it several times, as quickly as possible, without stumbling or mispronouncing.

For example, A fly and flea flew into a flue, said the fly to the flea ‘what shall we do?’, ‘let us fly’ said the flea said the fly ‘shall we flee’ so they flew through a flaw in the flue.
