Voiced and voiceless pairs can be difficult for some learners of English. This is especially the case in languages that don’t separate between the two sounds.
These tongue-twisters will alternate between voiced and voiceless sounds in order to train this area. Practise these on a regular basis to see the best results.
For more information, make sure to read more on voiced/voiceless sounds.
