I want to share with you another activity for third and fourth years. I propose a tongue-twister, a good way to improve pronunciation. Firstly, students will try to say some parts of the tongue-twister separately, in order to pronounce them correctly. In the end, they will try to say the tongue-twister as fast as possible, but also pronouncing it correctly, linking the words.
Another way to work with these tongue-twisters is separating the class in groups and make each group say one part of the tongue-twister.
Below I write you some examples of tongue-twisters:
-"I can skateboard with a black hat and eight bags"
-"I'm happy when it's hot and I'm on holiday"
-"The spider and the grasshopper are under the flower"
-"Five fish eat ice cream with a knife"
-"The green witch is wearing punk jeans"
-"The rich prince likes chicken and English"
-"The snake and the spider eat spaghetti"
This idea was taken in a formation course by Enma Thomas.
