In Shenyang, China, more than 70 teachers and students joined English Language Fellow Steven M. Taillard for a workshop at the Shenyang Consulate focusing on how tongue twisters can be used to help teach pronunciation.

Often times Chinese students struggle with pronunciation and as a result are timid when it comes to speaking. Tongue twisters offer them a chance to learn and practice their spoken English in a fun and engaging way. Through this interactive workshop, the teachers and students learned how to incorporate them into their lessons and had many opportunities to model proper pronunciation techniques with increasingly difficult tongue twisters.
