Los trabalenguas (Tongue-twister en inglés) son uno de los mejores ejercicios que puedes hacer para mejorar fluidez y pronunciación en tu habla (al igual que con el rap/hip-hop, pero esto es otro tema).
Obviamente, hay de todos los tipos, tamaños y niveles, por lo que hoy vamos a aprovechar para poner algunos de ellos:
