International Tongue Twister Day
International Tongue Twister Day is celebrated every year on the second Sunday of November. This year it is celebrated on November 12. International Tongue Twister Day is created to celebrate the Tongue Twister (Word that’s hard to pronounce correctly, and it can be used as a type of spoken word game). It will be more fun when you repeat those for several times. The reason they are so difficult to pronounce especially after repeating them over and over again is due to the fact that the same sounds are returned at the beginning of each word.
