Tongue Twisters - Starter Activities and Practice at Home to Improve Vocal Technique

Some good tongue - twisters that can be done in class with students initially- say them altogether, then maybe they work on them in pairs. Practice saying in turn each tongue twister, slowly to start with and then try and get faster.

         Are you copper bottoming 'em maam? No, I'm aluminiuming 'em my man
         You know New York, you need New York, you know you need, unique New York
         She stood upon the balustraded balcony, inexplicably mimicking him hiccupping and amicably welcoming him in
§         Then can be practiced at home to develop the use of  voice/ articulation by saying and repeating actual lines at home so that every word is clear.
§         Encourage the students to say them in front of a mirror so that they can see how much their mouth/ lips/ tongue have to move to get them right and clear!
