#087 English accent reduction - Pronunciation practice with tongue twisters

Welcome to Speak English Now Podcast. With your host Georgiana. The podcast that will help you to speak English fluently with no grammar and no textbooks. 

Hi, everybody! I'm Georgiana, your online English teacher, and founder of speakenglishpodcast.com

My mission is to help you to speak English fluently.

Today I'll focus again on the English pronunciation particularly on the vowels with some funny tongue twisters. I'm sure you remember that I made another episode about tongue twisters just recently.

If you missed it just go to my website and listen to episode #083.

And in the second part of this episode, you'll learn English grammar without studying any rules with an exclusive point of view story.

Ok! Let's start!

But first, I’ll remind you what a tongue twister is. It’s usually a sentence that is difficult to say fast because the words in the sentence have very similar sounds. 

For example: "Annie ate eight Arctic apples." 

Tongue twisters allow us to practice pronunciation and, most importantly, agility when producing sounds in the language.

If you want to sound more like an American, it's vital to pronounce vowels correctly. The following tongue twisters will help you reduce your accent for the vowels "a," "e""o" and "u." 

Like any other tongue twister, your goal is to recite as fast as possible and with few mistakes. 

Okay. Now let's see some tongue twisters. I'll start saying each tongue twister slowly and then continue faster. 

And while it's true that that at first, they can seem very difficult. Don't worry about it. Make sure to have the text in front of you because like that you can follow it better.

1. Excited executioner exercising his excising powers excessively. 

2. Annie ate eight Arctic apples.

3. Mary Mac's mother's making Mary Mac marry me. My mother's making me marry Mary Mac. Will I always be so merry when Mary's taking care of me? Will I always be so merry when I marry Mary Mac?

4. Picky people pick Peter Pan Peanut-Butter,' tis the peanut-butter picky people pick!

5. I wish to wish, I dream to dream, I try to try, and I live to live, and I'd die to die, and I cry to cry, but I don't know why.

6. Near an ear, the nearer ear a nearly eerie ear.
