In this intermediate-level lesson, we learn five popular Italian tongue twisters. In Italian, we call tongue twisters “scioglilingua”, which literally translates into “melt tongue”.

Two Main Takeaways

  • Tongue twisters usually don’t make sense, but they help us practice the pronunciation of difficult sounds in Italian.
  • A popular tongue twister that is also challenging for native Italian speakers is: “Sopra la panca la capra campa, sotto la panca la capra crepa”.
