I made a short (59 second) video clip about Tbilisi Metro, using my smartphone (a Huawei) and a simple video edit program called VideoShow. Here is the link: click here
(I don’t have a premium account to add the clip directly to my WordPress blog).
I haven’t done any video editing before but I was able to add music and subtitles as well as making some transitions from one cut to the next.
Once again I am inspired by the escalator descending to the metro platforms.
My Georgian continues to make painfully slow progress. Almost everyday I take the metro and I thought that if I read the ads, it would get me more familiar with the language.
Tempo Cigarette Ad
This is an advertisement for Tempo (ტემპო) Cigarettes. იტალიური სტილი letter for letter is italiuri stili…so that is easy “Italian Style”. In the red circle is written ახალი which means “new”.
The health warning at the bottom of the ad starts მოწევა კლავს which translates as “Smoking Kills”. A much higher percentage of Georgians smoke than most Europeans (apart from maybe Russians and Serbs). I have never smoked, I never saw the point.
This ecstatic woman is all around Tbilisi advertising the lottery, something else which doesn’t interest me but I can learn the phrase “შენი ჯერია მოიგო!” which translates as “your turn to win!”
Other ads are for bank credit, phone packages and various pharmaceuticals…not especially exciting but could be useful for learning the languagel
