Virelangues, Zungenbrecher, & Tongue Twisters

In foreign language learning, phonetics often pose a problem for second language learners. Certain language courses use tongue twisters as a learning tool to practice a specific speech sound through repetition. This project contains tongue twisters in three languages (French, German, and English) with a graphic twist, illustrating actions, characters, and objects mentioned within each tongue twister. By doing this, the book provides the opportunity to pick up new vocabulary and practice pronunciation.
