Tagalog Tongue Twisters So Challenging Your Tongue Might Actually Twist


How do you feel about this story?


Tongue twisters, you either love them or you hate them. Of course, you love the ones you can do and you hate the ones that no matter how slow you try to say them you still can’t say it! You may have heard a lot of English tongue twisters like “She sells seashells by the seashore” but Tagalog tongue twisters are a whole other level of difficulty. Here are some that you can practice, and show off once you’ve mastered them!

1. Pitongput pitong puting pating

2. Bumili ako ng bituka ng butiki sa butika.

3. Ang relo ni Leroy Rolex

4. Sinusi ni Susan ang sisidlan ng sisiw

5. Palakang Kabkab, kumakalabukab, kaka-kalabukab pa lamang, kumakalabukab na naman

6. Minekaniko ni Moniko ang makina ng manika ni Monika

7. Pinaputi ni Tepiterio ang pitong puting putong patong patong

8. Kalabit ng kalabit si Alabit na may bitbit sa balikat ng kanyang kalapit-kabalikat kapitbahay

9. Usong usong isang isang salu-salong nagsisi-usyosohan ang mga aso sa asosasyon sa Ascuzena

10. Kakakanan lang sa kangkungan sa may kakahuyan si Ken Ken habang kumakain ng kakaibang kakanin kahapon

If you can still talk after reading all of the tongue twisters, that is a huge accomplishment! A pro-tip to mastering the tongue twisters is to space out the words to syllables, say it very slowly then gradually increase the speed. The very small differences between the words make it THAT much harder. Luckily, practice makes perfect, and eventually, you can say the tongue twisters on the list with finesse.
