For the month of April, Union’s learners have been challenged to tackle three different tongue twisters in, respectively, Afrikaans, isiXhosa and English that weave together a wonderment of words designed to twist the tongue.
The competition will see Union’s young lovers of alliteration attempt to say these terrifically tough tongue twisters for a cash reward!
We wish our learners all the best as they push their linguistic and articulation skills to the limit!
The isiXhosa tongue twister reads as follows: “Iqaqa liziqikaqika kuqaqaqa laqawuka uqoqoqo” which loosely translates into English as “The skunk rolls over in the grass and sprains its windpipe”;
The Afrikaans tongue twister reads as follows: “Grys, grillerige goggatjies grawe graag geweldige groot gate”; and
The English tongue twister reads as follows: “Imagine an imaginary menagerie manager imagining managing an imaginary menagerie”.
Can you say it better?
