English Tongue Twisters (R and L sounds)

What is a tongue twister?

A tongue twister is a sequence of words that use repeated sounds. Even the most eloquent native English speakers can stumble on their words when they try to say tongue twisters quickly. Sometimes repeated sounds are alternated to add to the challenge.
