Pronunciation Practice

Thanks to a great idea from Irina, I'm going to add sound to this blog so you can practice pronunciation.

I leave time after each sentence for you to repeat it.  

Here is the first group of tongue twisters from two weeks ago.  They practice "s:":

1.  I saw Susie sitting in a shoe shine shop.
Where she sits she shines, and where she shines she sits.

2.Seth at Safeway sells thick socks.

3.Six sick hicks nick six slick bricks with picks and sticks.

4.Six sleek swans swam swiftly southwards.

5.She saw the Sheriff's shoes on the sofa. But was she so sure she saw the Sheriff's shoes on the sofa?

6.She sells sea shells by the seashore.  The shells she sells are seashore shells.

Here are 5 more which practice both "s" and "sh."

1.     Shy Sally says she shall sew six sheets for her sister   

2.     "Surely Sylvia swims!" shrieked Sammy surprised.  
        "Someone should show Sylvia some strokes so she 
         shall not sink."

3.       What a shame such a shapely sash should such 
           shabby stitches show.

4.       The sheriff should shoot slowly. 

5.        The sun shines on the shop signs.
