Tongue Twister Exercise

Spoken English Exercise Objective

The objective of this spoken English exercise is to habituate our tongues to pronounce difficult and same sounding words easily. For example the difference in sounds of "sa" and "sha" in "same" and "shame". It helps in getting our mouths properly stretched while speaking words.
