Video = 6.47 mins  link 

This video is a little boring .. it explains the words in English, Thai and Phonetic from Podcast teachers

it is educational but not funny ... so try the others and come back to this one



video = 4.20mins  link 

This video is a family video attempting to say the funniest THAI/ENGLISH twist...

It has the Thai word that sounds rudei n English .. so it makes it funny 

They keep laughing so much they can't get it finished...  at the very end they do...

need more .. here is a link to youtube search by words : tongue twister thai

Many Farang can not say Thai words like 

thai words ending with "ng"    example   Grape:  A-noong  

Also difficult for Farang to say the thai word for Hand .. try it



Six seashells sitting on the sea shore or the larger version

Sally sold sixty six thousand six hundred and sixty six saucy sausage scented seashells by the sizzlingly sun soaked sunset sea packets of seven silly shaped stainless steel saucepans with sixteen stupendously sumptously sexy sizzling sisters sauntering around suggestively in their skimpy strapless swimsuits!

(But be reee-ally careful with the one below):

Hey, how's your tongue? If it's not too twisted, you're ready for THE BUG.

Here's a twister sent to me by an viewer who spends her summers in an Ontario cottage. She knows all about mosquito and black fly bites! 

Do you know any adults who are good at tongue twisters? If so, challenge them with this one: 

Oops! That one did me in. My tongue is now so twisted that I'll never make it through this next one: 


I'm a sock cutter and I cut socks.   I'm a sock cutter and I cut socks.  I'm a sock cutter and I cut socks. 

Ah shucks, six stick shifts stuck shut!

and a tongue twister video 

and a tongue twister video link

Many Thai can not say English words like 

1. words begining with S ...  they separate the S . example Steak is S-teak or Smith is S-mith 
2. The Leter R and L are big trouble.   Ask a thai to say the word that describes the flower called a Lilly or as kthem to say the word "Really" in response to some news ie., "oh wow really", is it true.

then ask them to say the word "lilly" and Really"

Thai words that can be confusion   Glai and Glai (one means close the other means far away)

we can laugh at each other or with each other
