Spanish Tongue Twisters for Beginners – Our Top 5


We feel that it’s extremely important to have fun when learning languages and Spanish is no exception! Practicing Spanish tongue twisters can be really helpful for improving your pronunciation. Similar to learning songs in Spanish, it’s also a neat way to pick up vocabulary in context which aids retention.

Spanish tongue twisters are a great way to break down barriers when learning the language. As language learners, we should never be afraid of making mistakes. If we are never prepared to make a mistake, we will never improve. What’s more, over time you can speed up and impress your friends and teachers!

The Spanish for tongue twister is trabalenguas and they come in all forms and from all across the Spanish-speaking world. We’ve included examples from Venezuela and Mexico, as well as Spain, in our favourites.
