In my school days we played tongue twister and tried to pronounce correctly certain phrases. One of the toughest I remember. It is as below:

Sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick.

You simply need to search for tongue twister exercise on the search engine and you will find lots of blogs offering free sentences for you to practice. It is encouraged that you read out the tongue twister sentences aloud in order to improve your pronunciation.

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers; A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked; If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

The S ones are the ones that get me. Try this one:
She sells seashells by the seashore.
The shells she sells are surely seashells.
So if she sells shells on the seashore,
I'm sure she sells seashore shells.

This one was always a favorite of mine when I was younger:
How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
If a woodchuck could chuck wood?
He would chuck, he would, as much as he could,
And chuck as much as a woodchuck would
If a woodchuck could chuck wood.

Haha the one I remember from school is

Red lorry, yellow lorry and repeating it as fast as you can.

I have never heard of that one before Rafiki!
What about
Betty bought a bit of butter.
But the butter Betty bought was bitter.
so Betty bought a better butter,
and it was better than the butter Betty bought before.

We had to sing this in school. Bloody hated it.
