100 Английских Скороговорок

English Tongue Twisters

Скороговорки на английском языке способствуют развитию правильной артикуляции звуков и совершенствованию английского произношения. Но для того чтобы получить реальный эффект, скороговорки надо проговаривать вслух, а не читать «про себя».

Некоторые скороговорки на этой странице совсем короткие и состоят всего из нескольких слов, другие наоборот, являют собой четверостишия или даже целые небольшие стихотворения. Попробуйте выучить несколько скороговорок наизусть, — это занимательно и очень полезно для изучения английского.

Перевод скороговорок дело неблагодарное, поэтому не старайтесь перевести их дословно, многие из них просто не имеют явного смысла. Иногда достаточно понять слова, уловить общий смысл и проговорить фразу вслух.
