Hi everyone and welcome back to my channel! So, today we're having fun with tongue twisters. I have chosen four tongue twisters. We'll only do four today. These four tongue twisters are some of the most famous in Italian, the ones that even Italians find it hard to say, so don't worry! Today we practice pronouncing these tongue twisters. So, let's start with the first one, which is Apelle's, which is my favorite. I read it slowly, you will see it written here. "Apelles ...", actually I know it by heart, so I don't need to read it. "Apelles, son of Apollo, made a ball of chicken skin" "all the fish floated to surface to see the chicken skin ball made by Apelles son of Apollo" Now average speed. Apelles son of Apollo made a chicken skin ball all the fish floated to surface to see the chicken skin ball made by Apelles son of Apollo So, now supersonic speed! And you will see that when we say these tongue twisters, we tend to give a melody to what we say, and in fact, I don't know if you've noticed before, this melody was heard a little, wasn't it? To facilitate the act of speaking the tongue twister. So let's see, at supersonic speed, okay? Apelles son of Apollo made a chicken skin ball all the fish floated to surface to see the chicken skin ball made by Apelles son of Apollo So obviously these tongue twisters don't make sense. I mean, they have meanings, but they don't make sense. All Italians know these four tongue twisters, so you could have fun with your friends, if you have any. If you have any Italian at all, not friends in general. And challenge yourselves. Apelles son of Apollo made a chicken skin ball all the fish floated to surface to see the chicken skin ball made by Apelles son of Apollo The second is not so easy, because the R and T are - how to say they mix together and it can be difficult. Then the second is: Thirty-three Trentino people enter Trento all thirty-three trotting. Thirty-three Trentino people enter Trento all thirty-three trotting. If I say it quickly, I can't. Thirty-three Trentino people enter Trento all thirty-three trotting. Thirty-three Trentino - okay, let's go on. Let's do that of the bench. That of the bench with the goat is: Above the bench the goat lives, under the bench the goat dies. So "campare" means "to live", "crepare" means "to die", so if we were to explain this tongue twister, we would say that: if the goat is on the bench, it lives; if instead the goat is under the bench, it dies. So: the goat lives on the bench, the goat dies under the bench. Yes, but you see I can't say it very quickly, because the fear of making mistakes is in me. They are difficult, I told you, these tongue twisters are difficult for everyone and they are meant to be difficult and panic speakers. Obviously then , words are chosen precisely because of the sounds, some combinations of letters are difficult to pronounce if pronounced quickly. There is always the R in the mix, the R is always a little difficult to pronounce in combination with other consonants, so here is the P and the R, before it was the T and the R. Let's see the fourth one, this too is very famous and is that of the three tigers. Here too we have the R in combination with the letter T and the letter G. So: three tigers against three tigers. This is a nightmare. Three tigers against three tigers. See, in the end if you say it quickly, you can't. No matter how hard you try, in the end you can't. Okay, I think these four tongue twisters are enough to demoralize us all a bit. Try, try to say these tongue twisters and you will see how much fun it will be.
