Tongue twisters are a great way to improve pronunciation. Try this one. Don't worry if you find it difficult at first, it's quite hard even for native speakers.

She sells sea shells by the sea shore. The shells she sells are surely seashells. So if she sells shells on the seashore, I'm sure she sells seashore shells.

This makes the sh sound in shower or she. It is not always with letters sh though. It can be ch machine or ti or ci. Fiction or Special show this. Can you see a word in the tongue twister above where the letter s is pronounced like sh in she?

It's the word surely.

Does anybody have any more suggestions in English.
I'm just beginning Spanish and would like something to help with the different sounds for the letter c. So if you have any of those it would be great and it would be interesting for other ones such as the rolling r in Italian. Some Asian ones would be great as well.

I have been teaching English for over twenty years. I have taught all levels from beginner to proficiency. I have taught the full suite of Cambridge Exams and recently I have been specialising in the IELTS exam and many of my students have obtained 7 or higher. I love English and am passionate about teaching it and how it works. I really like students to enjoy themselves in my lessons by engaging with the language in very active and stimulating way. I make my lessons fun and interesting for all learners and want students to feel comfortable and confident with the language they learn. It's great when students lose their inhibitions and really give it a go with new language,
