Good morning.

Today is Tongue Twister Tuesday. Tongue twisters are used by all professional ESL teachers and trainers. You will improve your pronunciation, annunciation, diction, fluency and rhythm in speaking English. Plus, it is fun to try.

Today’s Tongue Twister

“A good cook who cooks cookies, could cook more cookies than a good cook who couldn’t cook cookies cooks.”

Ah, this one is so much fun. Of course the word ‘cook’ is a noun. It is a person who cooks. ‘Cook’ can also be a verb as you can see in this tongue twister. And, you know that ‘cookie’ comes from the same root at ‘cook.’ So, that’s what makes this tongue twister so challenging and fun.

Have fun!

So long for now! (Another way to say ‘goodbye’)

That’s all for today.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

    In my experience, what holds back English education in China is that their is no foundation of learning to speak the language. Speaking is fundamental and foundation in language learning. It is rare here in China. I find it interesting that most Chinese primary and secondary schools do not teach Chinese grammar. Yet, they focus 90% or more of their time teaching English learning grammar rules. An effort in futility from my experience of teaching more than 4000 students and thousands more students.

    Until the Chinese change the methods used to teach English by Chinese teachers and get rid of 99% of the poor foreign teachers. Maybe 5% of the Chinese will master English.Maybe. Taliking how and actually doing it are very different.
