Eine Frau möchte den deutschen Zungenbrecher üben: Fischers Fritz Fischt Frische Fische

Practice the German pronunciation

With tongue twisters you can practice exactly those sounds that are difficult for you - for example because they do not exist in your own language.

This will improve your pronunciation and sound more fluent.

With these tongue twisters you can, for example, practice the [ts] sound (Z is spoken [ts]!), The SCH sound, various sound combinations ... and above all, it's a lot of fun!

How do I practice tongue twisters?

  1. Read the tongue twister quietly and slowly.

  2. Listen to the audio recording from the tongue twister several times.

  3. Then speak it softly and slowly.

  4. Speak the tongue twister loudly and slowly.

  5. Now speak the tongue twister loudly and quickly several times.

This tongue twister will help you practice the practice:
