Le virelangue 👅🔨

Just found these in my french textbook and thought maybe you know a couple more… sounds fun

Je cherche Serge. 🕵️‍♂️

La roue sur la rue roule. :bike:

Trois gros rats gris. :rat:

Natacha n’attacha pas son chat Pacha. :cat2:

Les Chaussures d’Ursule sont usées. :boot:

Haha, oh wow, I just tried to read all of the virelangues, one after another. I just couldn’t!

Ce sont de très bons exercices d’articulation ! :ok_hand:

Au théâtre, I used to practice with "Je veux et j’exige d’exquises excuses" :exploding_head:

I knew some even more difficult variations of your first two : "Suis-je bien chez ce cher Serge?" and "la roue sur la rue roule, la rue sous la roue reste".

A very famous one is "Les chaussettes de l’archi-duchesse sont-elles sèches, archi-sèches ?" :socks:

Once you master them, the goal is to repeat them as quickly as possible ! Bonne chance !! :crazy_face:

Brilliant. I love these. The only one I know is ‘si mon tonton tond ton tonton, ton tonton sera tondu.’
