Famous French tongue twisters


Recommended Posts

Want to test yourself or/and most probably treat yourself to a handful of chuckles?

Bellow are famous French tongue twisters, so why not give them a shot without omitting (of course) to share your feedback!  :wink:

1-" Un chasseur sachant chasser doit savoir chasser sans son chien. "

2-" Les chaussettes de l'archiduchesse sont-elles sèches?  Archi-sèches ? "

3-" Suis-je bien chez ce cher Serge? "

4-" Si six scies scient six cyprès, alors combien de scies scient six cent six cyprès ? "

5- "Je troque trente trucs turcs contre treize textes tchèques.  "

"troquer" is basically "to trade". While "échanger" (to swap) is most commonly used on a daily basis these days, troquer still is a well-anchored word in the French vocabulary.

You will often come across it in classic French literature, and it isn't rare to hear people aged 40 and over include it in their sentences.

In this specific case:

Je troque trente trucs turcs contre treize textes tchèques.

I trade thirty Turkish things against thirteen Czech texts.
