R / L Tongue Twisters

r and l tongue twisters


Some languages such as Japanese don’t have a separate sound for /r/ and /l/. Instead, they have a different sound which is somewhere in between the two. As you can imagine, without hearing this differentiation it can make it harder when trying to pronounce the English sounds!

After you have learned how to make the /r/ and /l/ sounds, you then need to practise, practise and practise some more!

These r and l tongue twisters are designed to increase flexibility when going between the ‘R’ & ‘L’ sounds. Start slow and gradually speed up as you become more confident!
