Lesson 17 | Tongue twisters in Swedish
This is our 17th lesson and I have decided to make it funny. Do you like tongue twisters and do you know any in your language? You can share it with us in the comment section.
Swedish tongue twisters
It is always fun to try new tongue twisters. I am usually not able to make them even in my mother tongue and the more I try the funnier it is. Are you ready to twist your tongue?
Sex laxar i en laxask.
Six salmons in a salmon-box.
Får får får? Får får inte får, får får lamm.
Do sheep get sheep? Sheep don’t get sheep, sheep get lamb.
This one is really funny and it is a pun as well. I really like it. I guess that you couldn’t find anything like this in any other language. Here comes next.
