– This is the most streamed song?
– How did I not guess this? This was literally THE song.
– Shut up! I knew it! ♪ (punk rock intro) ♪ – (FBE) The 2010s are coming
to an end, but fortunately for you, we’re going to be taking a trip
down memory lane and looking back at the decade’s biggest songs.
– Oh my gosh. Yay! The music from the early 2010s,
those were all bops. – (FBE) So, we’re gonna
be showing you the top five most globally streamed songs
on Spotify of the decade… – Oh, heck yeah.
– (FBE) …and get your thoughts on some of the biggest songs
of the last 10 years. – I’m excited. I have a playlist
called a better time, and it’s all just like Jonas Brothers,
Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, One Direction. I’m just excited
to relive my childhood through music. – ♪ When your legs don’t work
like they used to before ♪ – This is so good.
– That’s so crazy. 2014! I still hear this song all the time.
– ♪ Daring, I… ♪ – (sings along) ♪ Will be
loving you till we’re 70 ♪ – Ah, I hate this song.
– I feel like she’s doing all the dancing.
He’s just moving. – I just can’t believe
he’s the one doing all this, and that girl is lucky.
Like, Ed Sheeran? He’s cool. – I hear it all the time.
It’s just– I don’t like it. Shut up! – So, for Ed Sheeran,
I don’t choose to listen to him, but when I hear him, I like it.
– (chuckles) Ed Sheeran. What a guy. What a guy.
– (sings along) ♪ Every single day ♪ Oh. Put Ed Sheeran
on Dancing with the Stars. – ♪ So, honey now ♪ (sings along) ♪ Take me
into [bleep] arms ♪ I remember that
being a joke thing. – Good song, though.
It’s a good song. It is a good song. Just got annoying,
’cause it got so popular. – I used to cry to this song
when I was like, what? 12? And I’d be like (sniffles)
(chuckles) – ♪ Found love
right where we are ♪ – I actually wasn’t expecting
that one to be on there, but I can see why Ed Sheeran is great.
It’s just such a nice song with great lyrics, great melody.
I remember singing this at a sixth grade dance
with all my friends. – He made the perfect song
for walking down the aisle. – I remember when I first discovered
Ed Sheeran, it was “The A Team” back in those REAL
sad boy Tumblr days. So crazy how popular
some artists get within 10 years.
– (FBE) So, this track appeared on Sheeran’s second album, “Multiply,”
which was released in 2014. And the single spent a whole year
in the UK top 40 and was the first song to be
streamed over 500 million times on Spotify. Do you remember
what you thought about the song when it maybe first came out?
– When it first came out, so that’s like–
I think that was like five years ago. That’s that tweener stage.
So, you wanna– you like it, but you’re not gonna say
that you like it, but you know you like it.
– I was really in my boy band phase. That’s where I was when I was 14.
Ed Sheeran, I feel like has a similar style to that.
– Everyone just got a phone. It’s like, “Oh my gosh.
Look at this song.” So, it was really, really
popular at the time and it’s so good. – (FBE) So, before we move on,
do you think you can guess which song is gonna come in
at number four? – It’s gonna either be
maybe Ariana Grande– Billie, of course, has
to be somewhere on here. – The Chainsmokers?
That’s what I’m thinking. – ♪ Hey ♪
♪ I was doing just fine… ♪ – Oh my god! I forgot
about this song too! – Oh my gosh! How did
I do that?! I knew it. – 2016? It felt like yesterday.
(chuckles) – I LOVE Chainsmokers now.
I just picked them up this last year during my sad phase.
– This is another song that I could not get out of my head.
– Oh, oh, hi. Oh my god. Halsey’s so hot.
– I would say I’m a little surprised by this one,
for it to be above Ed Sheeran. – Ew!
– Okay, I’ve never seen this music video. It’s a lot.
– ♪ So, baby… ♪ – (sings along) ♪ Pull me closer ♪
– (sings along) ♪ In the backseat of your Rover ♪ (laughs)
– (sings along) ♪ Can’t afford ♪ Dude, literally this section
of the lyrics too, I was like, “Oh my g”– like, his mind!
(laughs) Like oh my god! – ♪ Roommate back in Boulder ♪
♪ We ain’t never getting older ♪ – I love Halsey.
I’ve always loved Halsey. She showed up in
my Artists of the Decade. – This was when Musical.ly
came out, right? We’re going memory lane.
And the song became really popular. – Dude, you’re unlocking levels
of my brain that I totally forgot about these songs.
But obviously, as soon as you play them,
I know every lyric. I remember exactly what I was doing
when this music was going out. – (FBE) Number four is “Closer”
by the Chainsmokers featuring Halsey. And the track was released
in December of 2016 and stayed at the top of the Billboard Hot 100
for 12 consecutive weeks. – Wow. Again, I’m really shocked
at what an international success this song was.
– In that month, they blew up. It went from nobody
really knowing them to everybody, like,
“Oh, did you hear that?” It’s like, “You don’t
know them? You’re weird.” So, I think that song
gave them a lot of recognition that they deserved. – (gasps) Oh, yay! Postie!
I’m happy about this one. I love Post Malone.
– Shut up! I knew it! – This is also one
of the most streamed songs? What? – This song is a bop, though. – ♪ Drinking… ♪
– I mean, I liked Post Malone for a while.
– And this song was literally everywhere-everywhere.
Everybody knew Savage’s verse. – I think the reason why this one
was so top is ’cause 21 Savage was a part of it too.
– ♪ On the table, liquor pourin’ ♪
♪ Don’t give a damn ♪ – This isn’t a very
interesting music video. – ♪ She just tryna get… ♪
– (sings along) ♪ In ♪ ♪ Saying “I’m with the band” ♪
– ♪ Ay, ay ♪ – That one’s a good song too.
I mean, I wasn’t expecting that. I didn’t hear that many people
playing that one. – At the time, everyone was like,
“Have you listened to his song? Have you listened to his album?”
– Just overall, Post Malone seems like a cool guy.
I mean, his music has been really popping off this year.
So, it really does make sense. – (FBE) So, at number three
is “Rockstar” by Post Malone featuring 21 Savage,
which reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 in 2017,
and it reached the top spot in several other countries,
including Australia, Canada, Portugal, Ireland, New Zealand,
Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and the UK, just to name a few.
– “Just to name a few.” Awesome. – Music is so international now,
because everyone’s just streaming it. You can just go on Spotify
and look up your artist or you can use Apple Music.
There’s tons of platforms now. There are no borders to music.
– ♪ Grips on your waist ♪ ♪ Front way, back way ♪
– YAY! – There. Why didn’t I
say this earlier?! Oh my gosh.
– ♪ I don’t play ♪ ♪ Streets not safe,
but I never run away ♪ ♪ Even when I’m away ♪
– (sings along) ♪ Oti, oti ♪ ♪ There’s never much love
when we go OT ♪ ♪ I pray to make it back in one… ♪
– My opinion? I think Drake was the best artist of the decade.
– ♪ That’s why I need a one dance ♪ – (sings along) ♪ Got a Hennessy
in my hand ♪ I could still dance to this song.
– Some of my best friends are really into his music.
And I do see his recorded music is really good and really catchy,
but I don’t like this live version. i want it to stop kind of.
– ♪ One more time ‘fore I go ♪ ♪ Higher powers taking a hold on me ♪
– Sometimes the songs with really simple melodies
are so catchy, ’cause it’s just easy to remember
and you just focus on the lyrics. – (sings along) ♪ One more time
‘fore I go ♪ ♪ Higher powers taking
a hold on me ♪ – Oh, look at him. Oh.
– (laughs) No! No more dancing, please!
– Ay, ay. (chuckles) He’s so cute. I remember that song.
It played everywhere, though. I did get sick of it quite easily.
– That is definitely a top song that I was playing all the time.
– 2016 to 2017, he was putting out so many bops. So many people were
into him when I was in high school. – (FBE) So, as you may have noticed,
“One Dance” is actually the only song on Spotify’s list that doesn’t
have an official music video, which is why you just watched
the SNL performance instead. – Yeah, I noticed. I was like,
“This doesn’t really look like a music video.”
– So, I guess, in a sense, it probably did drive more people
to go to Spotify or Apple Music or whatever streaming platform
that they have to listen to it, ’cause they don’t wanna listen
to the live version. But also, again, for example,
like Ariana Grande’s music, she makes hella music videos
and releases it and both of them always do very well. – ♪ A club isn’t the best place ♪
– Go, Ed Sheeran! Woo-hoo. – Oh my god! It’s another
Ed Sheer– What?! – This was literally THE song.
– (claps) Fun fact: this was my alarm song
(chuckles) for like a year. – I think it’s a decent song.
– It’s vibing. You get the beat. Everyone played it everywhere!
I just didn’t like it. – ♪ And now I’m singing like ♪
– (sings along) ♪ Girl, you know I want your love ♪
– (sings along) ♪ Your love was handmade for somebody
like me ♪ ♪ Come on now, follow my lead ♪
♪ I may be crazy ♪ – Wait, no. I hate this song too.
What am I saying? I just– I– Ed Sheeran!
I just don’t like his music. – ♪ And put that body on me ♪
♪ Come on now, follow my… ♪ – Ed Sheeran is making
that sh’money. (chuckles) – ♪ I’m in love
with the shape of you ♪ – Look at him going off.
Athletic king. – Is it weird?
I feel like it’s weird. You know, staring at a girl
at the gym, you know? – ♪ Last night, you were in my room ♪
– Ouch. – It just annoys me.
I don’t know. It’s just not really poppin’.
It doesn’t really have a beat to it. It’s more of a rap beat
to a pop song. – ♪ Oh I ♪
– (sings along) ♪ Oh I, oh I, oh I♪
♪ I’m in love with your body ♪ Wow! Yay! I’m happy for him.
I’m kinda glad it wasn’t Senorita. (chuckles)
– This is the most streamed song of the 201– like this year
also counts as the– what?! – Now that I think about it,
Ed Sheeran was poppin’ in these 2014, 2015, 2016,
all the way to 2017. – (FBE) Spotify’s most streamed
song of the decade is “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran,
which came out in 2017. The song peaked at number one
on the singles chart in 34 countries and it was also the first song
on Spotify to hit two billion streams. – Mm, two billion.
The first one to ever hit two– wow. – (FBE) Why do you think
that this song in particular was such a smash hit of this decade?
– It was an easy tune to dance to. – That’s the only reason why I think
people like it is because it gets stuck in their head and they just
constantly say it and sing it over and over, so they wanna
listen to it more. – It kind of mixed in a lot
of genres that it’s appealing to almost everybody.
– Each one of them, I understand why they got the place
that they did. It makes a lot of sense,
because if you think about it, that was the song of that time.
– (FBE) So, that now you’ve seen Spotify’s decades list,
were there any songs on this list that surprised you?
– I was definitely surprised by a bunch of them.
I was kind of expecting more hits from the earlier 2010s.
But I mean, it kind of makes sense since Spotify’s
a lot more popular now that it would be
more recent songs. – I would say they all
surprised me to be honest. But I’m very pleased
that everybody loves Ed Sheeran. – Ed Sheeran twice,
that’s what surprised me. And Drake’s song, not really.
None of these surprised me. They were all just like, “Yeah,
I heard those a bazillion times.” – All of those surprised me
except for Drake’s “One Dance.” That made sense to me.
I was like, “Oh yeah, that song was really popular.
I like that song.” I’m thinking Taylor Swift,
Lorde, Ariana Grande, [bleep] Jonas Brothers,
One Direction, like all the songs, but I feel like nobody–
when those songs first came out, it was like 2009 to 2013, right?
And no one was on Spotify then. Everyone was on the radio,
so that’s probably why those songs have
the most Spotify streams, because those got released
when everyone started jumping on the bandwagon for Spotify.
No one had Spotify until I was in high school.
– (FBE) So finally, we wanna know what is the one song
that encapsulates your 2010s? – Oh, no. Probably a Beyonce song.
– I’m gonna say Alina Baraz has been a really big impact
and Sabrina Claudio. Those are definitely artists
that I’ve been listening to a lot. – My favorite song out of the 2010s
was “Ophelia” by the Lumineers. That was– that got me
through everything, every little hardship.
– I’m gonna say “XO Tour Llif3” from Lil Uzi Vert, ’cause I think
I played that song more times than any other song.
– “Youngblood” by 5 Seconds of Summer. It’s just so upbeat, so fast.
And since I dance, I love that song. It just has a little
catchy beat, you know? – Thanks for watching

Ever wonder where girls get all their makeup and beauty ideas? Well, from looking a magazines, of course! Wow! How does she get her lips to look so full and pouty? How can I get my lips to look like that? I wonder if Lana would mind if I borrowed some of her makeup. This lash glue could work! Maybe I could just make my lips look plump without actually plumping them. Uh, Bella? Don’t you think that makes you look a little crazy? Hey, Lana, what do you think? Yikes. Looks like these these could use a few new makeup hacks, don’t you think? Well, what do we have here? Getting all dolled up for a night out, are we? Woah! That’s an amazing eyeshadow palette! So many gorgeous hues. Perfect! Here, you want it, Bella? No! My eyeshadow!!! Sorry, Bella, I thought you had a good grip! Ugh, that palette was brand spankin’ new, Lana. My bad. Hey, maybe we can just use something else on our eyes. Hey, these lipsticks could work, right? Why don’t we give it a whirl? Sounds interesting enough. If you’re in a bind and don’t have all your makeup available, try using some of your lipsticks as eyeshadow! Start with a nude shade like this one and put it all over your lid. Before it dries, blend it into your lids to soften the edges a bit. Pick a bold color like red and dab it onto the outer edge of your lid. Once it tries, blend the color in using circular motions with your brush. Last but not least, put a light shade in the middle of your lid, but only a little. You guessed it: time to blend some more. Hey! If I didn’t know any better, I’d say you were wearing expensive eyeshadow! Oh yes, I know I look beautiful. Now get going! You’re gonna be late! It’s only an hour until Bella’s big birthday bash! You’d better hurry up with those balloons, Lana, you’re running out of time. Oh gosh, what happened to my makeup sponge? It’s disgusting! I’m definitely not putting that thing on my face. Uh oh…I think… I’m…gonna… ACHOO! Watch out for the flying makeup sponge! And there goes the balloon. Geez, Bella, why are your sneezes always so dramatic? Sorry! I can’t help it! Hey, here’s your deflated balloon. I wonder if I could use this thing as a makeshift sponge. To do this, squeeze your favorite foundation onto the tip of the slightly blown up balloon, like so. Once you’ve blotted it across your face, start blending it in with gentle pats. Hey, that doesn’t look half bad! The flatness of the latex really makes for a good blender, hiding all your pores. Well, we’re just about done here. Wow! Who knew a deflated balloon could make me look so fabulous? What do you think, Lana? Dang, girl, your skin looks flawless! And it’s all because of a balloon? Pretty impressive. And now that I’m done with my makeup, Ill give you a hand with these bad boys. Happy birthday to me! For some girls, a little bit of sparkle is nice from time to time. But for people like Lana, the more glitter, the better! Wow! Look how sparkly! Uh, Lana? I’m not so sure that makeup brush is supposed to be used for crafting. It’s no use. This girl is officially under the sparkle spell. Hey Lana, whatcha up to? Oh ya know, just glitter-fying some of my stuff. No. That’s not yours. Sure it is! It’s my brush! No! I bought this last weekend! It’s brand new and super expensive, Lana! How am I supposed to get all this paint and glitter off? You’d better hope this cleaning method works. Or you’re going to owe me another brush! Well, geez, you don’t need to be mean about it… Need to give your makeup brush a good clean? Put some hand soap on a flat lego piece like this one here. Once you’ve got a good glob on there, take your brush in the other hand and rub it into the grooves of the plastic. Yikes! Look at all that nastiness! And it’s all coming right off. Don’t forget to give the brush a good rinse as you go. You’ll know you’re done when the water off the brunch runs clear. Ok Lana, I have good news! Thanks to this thing, my brush is good as new! Great! Can I have it back now? I’ll take that as a no… Geez, I’ll be sure never to touch her stuff again. Well, except for this makeup case I snagged out of her room earlier! Okay let’s see what we have here… Jackpot! There are like ten brushes in here! Let the glitter-fest begin! Well, one things for sure — I don’t want to be around when Belle finds out about this! Haha! I can’t believe I’ve never seen this I Love Lucy episode! It’s hilarious! Oh man, time for an ice cream break. Mm, this looks so good. Lana! You’re totally missing the show! I guess makeup is more important these days. Lana! Look! Seriously, Bella? Do you not see I’m putting on mascara! Hey! It’s not funny! Look at my face! Now I have to do my makeup all over again. Ooh, I could just — way a second… Thank you! Oh don’t worry, I’ll just use my hand. If you’re trying to get as little mascara on your face as possible, a spoon cans serve as a shield! See? It’s going not the spoon instead of your face. This way you don’t have to struggle to remove it off your skin when you’re all done. Yep, looks pretty darn perfect. Here’s your spoon back! Am I supposed to put this thing into my ice cream? Hey, with beauty comes pain…and in this case, a grumbling tummy. Looks like Bella’s taking her precious time doing her makeup again. Let’s go! We’re gonna be late! Sorry, I still have to do my eyeshadow! Oops! C’mon, Bella, the least you could to is hurry things up a little. Wow, that shade of blue is so pretty. But all that blending action doesn’t come without a price. Gah! What’s all that dust under my eye? Get outta here! Uh oh… Ahh! Bella, what’s that stuff all over your face? Ooh, that’s too bad. But we can go now, right? You’d better sit tight Lana because this little mishap set you both at least 20 minutes back. Woah, Bella, what on earth are digging in your backpack for? Why do I have all this stuff? Uh… who carries a plunger around with them? Okay, is this some magic bottomless backpack or something? Ugh, c’mon, it’s gotta be in here somewhere! Okay, please don’t tell me that’s what you were looking for… Wow! Is that a real sword? I’m so borrowing this. In fact, This would go great with my outfit for tonight! Well, if we ever even get out of here… Yes! This is exactly what I was looking for! If you find yourself in a situation like Bella, little panty liners like these сan save the day. For this you’ll need a pad and a pair of scissors to cut the pad into three parts. But you’ll only need the two edges, not the middle. Now stick the pad right under your eye with the straight edge on top. Go ahead and to it to the other side. Ooh, lookin’ good! Now put on your shadow the same way you normally would. See? You don’t have to worry about the extra dust getting onto your face. Woah! That’s pretty messy stuff. All done? Now it’s time for the moment of truth! Now that’s a clean line, baby! Perfection has a name, and it’s Bella! That could’ve been on your face! That sure was impressive, Bella. So is it finally time to go? I’m so happy we were finally able to meet up! I’ve wanted to do this for weeks. Oh! I almost forgot! I have to tell you all about the gossip I heard yesterday! You remember Amy, right? Oh man, this is gonna be another one of Lana’s long-winded stories, isn’t it? Hold that thought, I’m gonna run to the restroom, okay? Alrighty then. Well I guess I can use this time to touch up my lipstick really quick. Let me get my compact out. Okay, let’s see what we’re dealing with here… Whenever your date runs to the restroom, it’s always an easy excuse to do a makeup check. Nice. All my blush wore off! I look so pale and splotchy. No, no, no, this just won’t do. I’ll just pop on a little blush and all will be better. Did I seriously forget to put it in here? Oh no! Now what am I going to do? If you’re ever in a bind and need to add a little color to your cheeks, try this handy little trick. Pucker up and put your freshly painted lips onto a paper napkin like this. Press the mark to your cheek like this. Now do the same exact thing to the other side. Don’t worry, it’s not going to look like this for long. With your finger, gently rub the lipstick into your skin. It’s a little sticky so take a minute to blend it in. Don’t forget the other cheek, Lana! There you go. Wow, that really does look like you’re wearing real blush! See the difference? Well, that was a close call. I’d better put this stuff away before he comes back! There you are! Man, stay out of that bathroom. Yikes! After spending some time in there, Lana’s long story suddenly doesn’t seem so bad. Hey! Looking good ladies. You’ve mastered the art of the selfie angle, for sure. Hey, my lips look so dull next to your gorgeous pout. So not fair. See? Bella’s pout looks plump and gorgeous! Mine just looks sad. Yep, there it is again. What can I say, I have nice lips. Genetics, I guess. Don’t bother, Lana, your lips aren’t just going to plump up because you pull on them. But maybe there’s something I can do… What? Where are you going? Okay, there’s gotta be something in here that can help juice these lips up. I wonder if this little vase could help. No one’s watching, let’s give it a try. Woah! Don’t suck too hard! Nope, not Kylie Jenner yet. Ugh, there’s gotta be something else I can do. Woah! I bet this giant vacuum could do the trick! Uh, isn’t that suction a little too strong for your delicate lips, Lana? Wow, this thing sure is powerful! Yikes! Did that hurt? Your lips look really red. Well that was a mistake. Lana? What the heck did you do to your face? I don’t want to talk about it. It hurts to much. Too bad it’s not Halloween, you could totally be a clown looking like that! You know, you could’ve just asked to borrow my lip liner. It enhances the look of your lips and it’s a whole lot less painful. Start by putting liner right where your skin meets your lips. Then take your favorite tinted lipgloss and apply it starting from the edges of your lips like so. Ooh! Don’t forget the top! Now take a white makeup pencil and very lightly outline the middle edge of your top lip. Then add a little bit of while dinner to the middle edge of your bottom lip. Pretty, cool, huh? See? Look how great Lana’s lips look now! See? This tricks a whole lot easier than sucking an empty jar. Let’s try these selfies again, shall we? Oh yeah, that’s much better.

Hello there! This is the “Sounds American” channel. In this video, we’re going to talk about the
American consonant sound /tʃ/, as in the word “chair.” You can also hear this sound in words like “child” – “coach” – “nature” or “catch.” We’ll be using special phonetic symbols – /tʃ/
– for this sound. If you watched our previous videos, you may find these symbols quite familiar. That’s right, the /tʃ/ actually consists
of two consonants: the stop sound /t/ and the fricative sound /ʃ/. You may wonder, why watch a video about two sounds we’ve already discussed on our Sounds American channel? That’s a good question. Here’s why. This video isn’t simply about the /t/ and
/ʃ/, but about how they merge into an entirely different consonant sound. The /tʃ/ is one of two consonant sounds in
American English that are made this way. They’re called “affricates”. So, what is an affricate sound? The affricates are made by first stopping
the airstream and then releasing it through a narrow passage in your mouth with an audible friction. Many non-native English speakers don’t think they have difficulties pronouncing the /tʃ/ sound. The problem, however, is that English spelling can be very tricky. And tricky spelling often leads to mispronunciations. Let’s do a quick test. Can you point out the words that are pronounced with the /tʃ/ sound? Take your time. OK, let’s check how you did. Do we have your attention yet? The point is, when it comes to the /tʃ/ sound, both pronunciation and spelling are important. We’ll cover spelling at the very end of this
video. And now let’s find out how to make the /tʃ/ sound correctly. As we said a minute ago, to make the /tʃ/
sound, you need to merge the stop /t/ with the fricative /ʃ/ into one sound. First, slightly open your mouth and push out your lips. Now, focus on your tongue. Place the tip of your tongue on the alveolar ridge behind your upper front teeth. Just as you do to make the /t/ sound. This way you stop the air. Now, to release the air, arch your tongue so it’s near the roof of your mouth. The same way as you do when you make the /ʃ/ sound. Make sure that you don’t touch the roof of
your mouth and there’s a small gap for the air stream. When you release the air through this gap,
it’ll flow with lots of noise: /tʃ/ Does that sound like a lot? Don’t worry, let’s watch it again in slow motion. Remember, the /tʃ/ is an affricate sound, so it’s important to completely stop the air and then immediately release it with friction. Now, let’s try and merge the /t/ and the /ʃ/
sounds together: Here are a few typical mistakes that people make when pronouncing this sound. The most common problem is that many non-native English speakers confuse the /tʃ/ and the /ʃ/ sounds. This happens when people don’t stop the air before making the /ʃ/ sound. Be careful as this may lead to misunderstandings. Compare: As always, keep in mind the Vowel Length rule! The /tʃ/ is a voiceless consonant, so vowel sounds before the /tʃ/ are typically shorter than they are before voiced consonants. Compare: We talked about the Vowel Length rule in detail in one of our previous videos. Don’t forget to check the link in the Description below! OK, now, let’s put all this knowledge into
practice. This is the best part of the entire lesson,
right? This is how it works. You’ll see a word on the screen and hear its pronunciation. Like this: You’ll have a few seconds to pronounce the word. ♪ Try to go through as many words as possible. We’ll start with the /tʃ/ represented by the combination of letters ‘ch’ or ‘tch’. Let’s begin. Let’s stop here for a second and take a short break. Next, we’ll practice words where this sound is represented by the letter ‘t’. It’s still the same /tʃ/ sound, just a different spelling. Let’s continue. Let’s pause here for a second to catch our breath. Next, we suggest you practice words in which the letters ‘ch’ are actually NOT pronounced as the /tʃ/ sound. So, if you pronounce them as /tʃ/, it’s a
mispronunciation. And that’s exactly what we’re trying to fix
with our exercises. Congratulations! You’re done! Congratulations! At the beginning of this video, we promised to help with the spelling for the /tʃ/ sound. Let’s take a look. Most often, the /tʃ/ sound is represented by the combination of letters ‘ch’, as in “check,” or “speech.” This may come as a surprise, but the /tʃ/
is also often written with the letter ‘t’, as in “suggestion” or “future.” Sometimes, this sound is represented by
the letters ‘tch’, as in “catch” or “kitchen.” And with one ‘c’ like in the word “ancient” or two letters ‘c’, like in the word “cappuccino.” The last example is nice, isn’t it? We like it a lot when you leave us your comments and questions! For example, this one. One of our users asked us about the dictionary that we use to transcribe the words in our videos. It’s a great question! This way the transcription matches what you hear as accurately as possible. So, in a way, we’re our own dictionary. 🙂 We do consult other sources for sanity checks, though. We like the Cambridge Online dictionary best. American English, of course. Click “Like” if you liked this video. Share this video with your friends, pets, and relatives.

(DOOR OPENS) – Can I hold your hand
– Uh, no. We got adopted by a bald guy.
I thought this would be more like Annie. (KYLE GROWLING SOFTLY) (SNARLING) (GASPS) No, hey! – Kyle, these are not treats, these are guests,
girls, this is Kyle, my dog.
– (SNARLS) Ooh! Fluffy doggy! (GASPS, YELPING) – What kind of dog is that?
– He’s a… I don’t know. MARGO: Do you really think this is
an inappropriate place for the kids?
‘Cause, uh, it’s not. – No! No! Stay away from there!
– (DOORS CLOSING) – (BOTH GASP)
– Well, he’s supposed the plan will work with to… EDITH: Hey! It’s dark in here. – (DOORS OPENING)
– (SPITS) It poked a hole in my juice box. As you can see if provided
everything a child might need. – All right, uh, as I was saying… Hey! Oh!
– (CRASHING) – Somebody broke that.
– (FIZZING) Okay, okay, clearly, we need to set some rules. – Rule No.1: You will not touch anything.
– Uh, what about the floor? – Yes, you may touch the floor.
– What about the air? – Yes, you may touch the air.
– What about this? (EXCLAIMS) – Where did you get that?
– Found it. Okay, Rule No.2: You will not
bother me while I’m working. Rule No.3: You will not cry or whine or laugh or sneeze
or barf or fart. So, no, no, no annoying sounds, right? Does this count us annoying? (POPPING) Very!
Namaskaram Sadhguru, You have said that Vak Shuddhi is not just about speaking the truth. It is about uttering the right kind of sounds which benefit us. How can we always maintain Vak Shuddhi? Should we always keep chanting? Can you please explain? Sadhguru: See, speech is a special gift to a human being. In terms of the complexity of what a human being can utter, no other creature can do this. Well, an elephant can trumpet louder than us. It can have you paralyzed. If it comes and trumpets anywhere near you, it’ll have you paralyzed just with shear sound. A lion can roar. Birds can do so many things. But no creature is capable of coming out with the complexity with which we can utter. The languages were consciously created so that simple utterance of the language will purify the system. Sanskrit language was created like this. So, most of us probably, are speaking in English language most of the time. Of all the.. not necessarily of all the languages – compared to the Indian languages, the vernacular languages or compared to Spanish or Latin or even Chinese or whatever, English language has the minimum range of sounds, very minimum. This is why, right from your birth if you’re speaking only English language you find it so difficult to utter some other mantra or some other language, because you’re using a very minimum range of expression. So the more minimalistic the range of sounds that you utter happens, the less Vak Shuddhi you have. So now you have to fix it by a certain active awareness and volition. One is the sound. Another is the intention of the sound. You can say ‘aye’ out of great love or you can say ‘aye’ out of something else. Now, both of them will not produce the same impact on the system. Because the volition of the action is the important or the major part of the karmic process is in the volition, not in the action. Similarly, major part of the karma is in the volition, not in the sound. But, if the sounds were scientifically structured, as in the mantras and in Sanskrit language, then even without much awareness if you utter, still you would benefit simply because of the nature of the arrangement of sounds. But now we are speaking languages which are no more made like that. So it is best to handle it with intention. I think many times I’ve told you about this. About this lady who came out of a concentration camp, during the World War II, and she took a vow… you know? So just took a vow, “If I speak to somebody now, if this happens to be my last…” – it could be – “If this happens to be my last words to this person, how I would utter this, like that I will utter to whoever I speak.” It’s a fantastic way of fixing your Vak Shuddhi. Vak Shuddhi means cleansing the sounds that you utter. To become conscious of the sounds, the science of sounds and the impact that this has on us and how to come to this, it is a phenomenal thing; it’s not going to happen in a lifetime to understand. This is Nada Yoga; it takes a whole lot of thing. So for that, to do Nada Yoga you have a chant. If you keep it going whenever.. I never consciously think about this, but if I sit, stand, you know, Shambho, Shiva simply happens to me, not because I intend to utter it, it just… my breath just takes that form. It is not happening just because I sit in a program or I am doing something important or not important. You can just bring it into your life like that. A lot of people have decided to use filthy words (Laughs) in their conversations Or these days, particularly I’m seeing the youth in United States trying to form a whole sentence with just one word, you know. I see a whole lot of people in India also have picked these things up and when they utter these words, people keep on saying “Shit, Shit…” I keep reminding them “please don’t do it here, please don’t do it here.” (Laughs) So (Laughs) this is one way of bringing the right kind of reverberation in the system. Why this is important is if you simply become silent within yourself, there is no better way; it is the ultimate way. If you can just simply become still within yourself, that is the best way. If that’s not happening, the next best and the next best is like this – you can say Shiva, it is the closest thing to stillness. Otherwise just one word doesn’t do for you, you can have a little more elaborate.. You need a sing-song, you can do Brahmananda Swaroopa, something or whatever mantra you picked among those five, six that are there. Whatever you resonate with, you just do that. Above all, to bring the right intention into every sound that you utter. If you bring the right intention into every single sound that you utter, these sounds will reverberate in a certain way within you. This foundation of the right kind of reverberation is necessary if you want to use this human system as a higher possibility. Otherwise it will only drag behind you all the time. If you want this to be a bigger possibility, this must have a foundation of the right kind of reverberation and Vak Shuddhi or cleansing the sounds that you utter is an important part of that. But if you can become utterly still, nothing like it.
