TONGUE TWISTERS - TRABALENGUAS

The word "trabalengua" comes from the verb "trabar" (to jam) and the noun "lengua" (tongue).  Trabalenguas are not only fun, but are a good way to practice your pronounciation of a language. 

Below is a sample trabalengua.  You need to press the button to listen to the trabalengua.  If you wish to see the translation press the "with translation" button.  If you wish to hide the translation press the "without translation" button.
