Warming up: tongue-twisters

This page is a warming-up activity; it's time to get used to speaking English again. Say these tongue-twisters fast. My compliments if you manage them more than four times in a row!

The first one may seem easy but try saying it fast several times in a row!

 Unique New York

Now try this one:

 She sells seashells down by the seashore

And finally this one:

 Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers

Warmed up? Well, then you can move on and remember sometimes the pronunciation matters. There's a difference between a bear and a beer...
