It is known for certain that the ancient Greek orator Demosthenes, who was born with speech defects and a weak voice, conquered these shortcomings with perseverance and energy. He learned to pronounce words clearly, picking shards and pebbles in his mouth, making speeches on the seashore. Due to the fact that the pebbles, being in the mouth, made it difficult to speak clearly, in order to pronounce something intelligible, it was necessary to try very hard to speak as loudly and clearly as possible. But when there were no more stones in the mouth, the habit of speaking clearly and loudly remained.
It is not hygienic to put dirty stones in your mouth, so it is better to train your speech not with foreign objects that interfere with your mouth, but with tongue twisters. Difficult phrases play the role of the same pebbles that the tongue stumbles over during pronunciation.
Using difficult to pronounce phrases for training, you can correct burr, slurry and other significant speech defects. And if you think you have good diction, then try to say this:

Queen Clara punished heavily
Karl for stealing coral!
