Here is phonetic pronouncation.
1. Till un cruh, a Ghunna-cha.
(NB: The 'Gh' sound there is like the hard G in the word Gun, but not as hard. More like an infant gurgling.
And the 'ch' sound is like the 'ch' in Loch Ness or the 'ch' sound in "Och, aye!" Not the 'ch' sound in "church".
If that's too tricky, you could go for
Till un cruh, a Gunna-ka (inaccurate, but close).
2. Coo-wa un ir vo-ir.
3. A chonga, a dee-yul vo-ir. Thaw too egg daynuv brayag
