Tongue twisters are difficult even for native speakers! They are difficult because of their unusual composition.
Tongue twisters are helpful for improving pronunciation as they stretch the muscles involved in speech.
Start by slowly saying them and speed up when you become comfortable. Along with saying them quickly, try to be as enunciate words as clear as possible. If you could master them, your pronunciation will become better and you will sound more confident while speaking.
Tongue twisters are used exercises by actors, politicians, comedians, radio / TV hosts for improving articulation.
Practicing tongue twisters helps in stretching of muscles involved in speech which is important to develop speech and diction.
