Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Peter: KoreanClass101.com presents "Korean Tongue-Twister Challenge." Lesson 1. Korean Tourism Organization
Kyejin: Hello, I'm Kyejin Kim.
Peter: And I'm Peter Galante. We’ll be your hosts for this audio series.
Peter: Tongue twisters are hard even for native speakers to pronounce. Repeated practice can improve articulation and enunciation — no matter your skill level with a language.
Kyejin: The best way to use this lesson is listen and speak out loud after the beep.
Peter: This is powerful language learning technique...
Kyejin: ...That helps you progress faster.
Peter: After you've learned the tongue twister, keep practicing it to increase speed and improve clarity. Professional speakers and singers often use tongue twisters as a way to warm-up before an important performance. You too can use them anytime you want to speak flawless Korean.
Peter: Use this tongue twister to perfect your Korean pronunciation.
