Is it possible to get a slower version of this sentence?

Tap the underlined words one by one.

'Tha' and 'cha' sound the same to me, does anyone know what the difference in pronunciation is?

They do sound very similar. The "cha" seems to have a minute hint of the "c". In this case the rest of the phrase tells us what the right word is. One would not say "tha toil leam"

On a different tack: Would "kippers" be the same as herring?

Oh! Right, the positive sentence would be "Is toil leam sgadan." And not "tha toil leam" as I was somehow imagining.

Kippers are smoked herring.
