Tricky Tongue Twisters

English Tongue Twisters:


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?


She sells seashells by the seashore


I saw a kitten eating chicken in the kitchen


If a dog chews shoes, whose shoes does he choose?

And for those who are already ahead, we have included a few challenging ones in German, French and Czech.

German Tongue Twister:


Brautkleid bleibt Brautkleid und Blaukraut bleibt Blaukraut.

Translation: A wedding dress will always be a wedding dress and a red cabbage will always be a red cabbage.

French Tongue Twister:


Je suis ce que je suis et si je suis ce que je suis, qu’est-ce que je suis ?

Translation: I follow what I am and if I follow what I am. What am I? What am I following?

Czech Tongue Twister:


Přišel za mnou jeden Řek, a ten mi řek, abych mu řek, kolik je v Řecku řeckých řek. A já mu řek, že nejsem Řek, abych mu řek, kolik je v Řecku řeckých řek.

Translation:  One Greek came to me and asked me to tell him, how many Greek rivers are there in Greece. And I told him that I was not a Greek to tell him how many Greek rivers there are in Greece.
