I agree with Bruce...  A little more information might be needed.  I do think even regular tongue twisters might work.  There is a wide variety of them found on this site and through google, even some work tongue twisters.  You can even make it a history lesson on what some mean.  Some can be actually quite interesting and teach a bit about the English language and Western early culture and how it has change over time; maybe a good discussion topic.

How about a part of this one (just shorten it as you please): When you write copy you have the right to copyright the copy you write. You can write good and copyright but copyright doesn īt mean copy good - it might not be right good copy, right? Now, writers of religious services write rite, and thus have the right to copyright the rite they write. Conservatives write right copy, and have the right to copyright the right copy they write. A right wing cleric might write right rite, and have the right to copyright the right rite he has the right to write. His editor has the job of making the right rite copy right before the copyright would be right. Then it might be copy good copyright. Should Thom Wright decide to write, then Wright might write right rite, which Wright has a right to copyright. Copying that rite would copy Wright īs right rite, and thus violate copyright, so Wright would have the legal right to right the wrong. Right? Legals write writs which is a right or not write writs right but all writs, copied or not, are writs that are copyright. Judges make writers write writs right. Advertisers write copy which is copyright the copy writer īs company, not the right of the writer to copyright. But the copy written is copyrighted as written, right? Wrongfully copying a right writ, a right rite or copy is not right.

For if she sells sea-shells on the sea-shore
Then I īm sure she sells sea-shore shells.


BTW, I do agree with the answers above, I think regular tongue-twisters should work, they do not come different for every topic and as much as they do, they can be found on the internet. That īs where I found them (e.g. : http://www.uebersetzung.at/twister/en.htm )

I hope they help, but about rudeness - I don īt think the teachers who gave you the answers above were (the) rude (ones).
