Voiced / Voiceless Tongue Twisters


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.
