  5. Seine Schwester spricht siebeā€¦

Seine Schwester spricht sieben Sprachen.

(His sister speaks seven languages.) To me this was a fun sentence, so I thought I'd share it! (Would this qualify as a tongue-twister in German?)

... with an update to the title!

Sadly, this does not qualify as a tongue-twister in German. At least from my point of view :)

(Just a quick tip: You have to write 'Sprachen' and not 'Sprache'. You have to use the plural because 'His sister' speaks not only one language but seven. )

Danke! Even if not exactly a tongue-twister, it's interesting to see what kind of sentence Duo will throw at you next. (And I fixed my title - Danke for mentioning it!)

It looks like you're learning a lot of languages - hope you're having fun!

Yes, the two ways of pronouncing "s". "Seine Schwester schpricht sieben Schprachen"
