The role of tongue twisters in learning Russian
Tongue twisters are an indispensable tool in improving pronunciation.
They enable foreign students to pronounce sounds and sound combinations without equivalents in their first language. For example, [c] and [ш], [р] and [л], [ц] and [ч].
Letter «Ц» (also known as Tse) is a letter of the Cyrillic script, not the easiest one from whole Russian alphabet, unusual writing and not at all easy pronunciation. The pronunciation of the letter «Ц»is obtained by a combination of the sounds [t] and [s]. In Russian the letter «ц» is always pronounced hardly before the sounds [a], [o], [y], [э].
