Tongue Twisters

Recommended Posts

I remember somebody asking ages ago about tongue twisters.. I've just come across this one:

Coco, le concasseur de cacao, courtisait Kiki la cocotte. Kiki la cocotte convoitait un caraco kaki col de caracul ; mais Coco, le concasseur de cacao, ne pouvait offrir Kiki la cocotte qu'un caraco kaki sans col de caracul. Le jour o Coco, le concasseur de cacao, vit que Kiki la cocotte arborait un caraco kaki col de caracul il comprit qu'il tait cocu.


No idea what it all means though, let alone say it

There are a few sites on the internet with French tongue twisters.

But - and I mean this most sincerely - they're just not the same as English ones! English ones tend to be tricky, with alternating sounds or whatever. Mostly, French ones are just a long list of alliteration, and usually not difficult.

This one's short, but it's the only one I've come across that works like an English one:

Je suis chez ce cher Serge.
