單元1:Tongue Twisters趣味繞口令

約翰叔叔小提醒】繞口令除了練習「發音正確」外,最要緊的是「字串」組合,也就是「連音」或哪些歸為「小組需一起念」,因此在口說句子時,具有韻律感,並能將重要的字詞或意思表達清楚,聽者也才容易理解。

How much wood would a woodchuck named Chuck in a truck chuck

If-a woodchuck named Chuck in a truck could chuck wood.

分段練習:

(-符號為斷點:請停頓一下)

How much wood would-a woodchuck named-Chuck in-a-truck chuck

If-a woodchuck named-Chuck in-a-truck could chuck wood.

(連續念2遍,並試著加快速度!)

中譯:

一隻叫查克的土撥鼠,開著卡車能搬多少木頭?

如果有一隻叫查克的土撥鼠,開著卡車搬木頭的話。
