We have a number of Czech tongue twisters on our Czech language learning site Local Lingo. We are in the process of adding audio for all of the tongue twisters and making them easy to listen to. Just press play – no software needed.
Here are a few popular tongue twisters with slow and normal speed audio.
If you would like to suggest a Czech tongue twister to include on Local Lingo, please let us know in the comments.

The Olympic games start today in Vancouver, Canada. The Czech Republic has sent a record number of 92 athletes to participate in the games. If you plan to follow the various sporting disciplines, you may hear some Czech names mentioned. We thought we would offer an audio pronunciation of the names of some of the Czech athletes to watch out for.
Click on the “play” button to hear the name pronounced. The button for the hockey team includes audio for all the players.
