Tongue Twister Challenge

This tongue twister is one of the most popular Chinese tongue twisters. It's so short that it only has 10 words. So, practice it, record it, and send it to!

Here is the Pinyin for the tongue twister. Pay attention to the tones!

Māmā qímǎ, mǎ màn, māmā mà mǎ

(Mother is riding a horse. The horse moves very slowly. Mother scolds the horse.)
