Tongue twisters are games with words that are difficult to pronounce together, quickly and properly, games that are designed to confuse us. And because they are very amusing, they have remained in the language from days gone by. And they trip us up, in the same way that they tripped up our grandparents and their parents and grandparents before them.

So, what do you say, let’s have a look at some of the favorite and best known tongue twisters? How fast do you think you’ll be able to say them?

Our tradition
Our tradition is a living thing.
It lives and breathes and exists around us. You will have heard, of course, that tradition is a way of life, the morals and mores of our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. But it’s not only that. It’s something unbelievably entertaining. It can give you hours of pleasure, play and enjoyment. Open this book and you’ll understand how!
