Tongue twisters are fun words games we use to challenge our pronunciation. As an English learner, you can use tongue twisters to help with pronunciation of certain sounds. In this tongue twister, A Flea and a Fly, you can work on your 'f's. Use lots of breath to help you get the fricative 'f' sound strong. Remember that 'f' is voiceless - pronounced without the voice by a strong push of air through pursed lips.
A Flea and a Fly
A flea and a fly flew up in a flue.
Said the flea, "Let us fly!"
Said the fly, "Let us flee!"
