R / L Tongue Twisters

r and l tongue twisters


These r and l tongue twisters will improve pronunciation by increasing flexibility when going between the ‘r’ sound & ‘l’ sound.

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, this can make it much more challenging when trying to pronounce the English sounds!

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

Start slow and gradually speed up as you become more confident!
