Episode 16: Korean Tongue Twisters!
It's time to warm up your mouths and jaws because this week I've got some pretty tough tongue twisters for you all! I've noticed that we haven't gone over pronunciation in a while so I decided to throw something new at you all and practice some Korean tongue twisters!
Tongue twisters are a great way to improve pronunciation and learn some new vocab!
