Even simple ones, but saying them multiple times makes them hard to pronounce.

In: Biology

It’s not really a neurological thing, it mostly has to do with what your tongue is used to saying. It’s physical. People who grew up speaking more complex languages will generally not have as much trouble with tongue twisters (or copying accents for example). It’s a matter of what you’re physically used to, and you can practice it out to become better at them.
