Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Michael: In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Hungarian learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native speaker. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then, through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.

Lesson focus

Michael: In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question How old are you? In Hungarian this is
Lena: Hány éves vagy?
Michael: The first word in the question is
Lena: hány
Michael: meaning “how many” in English.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) hány
Michael: Listen again and repeat.
Lena: hány
{Pause}
Michael: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Lena: éves
Michael: meaning “years old.”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) éves
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: éves
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Lena: Hány éves
{pause}
Michael: And next
Lena: vagy
Michael: meaning “are you”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) vagy
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: vagy
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Lena: Hány éves vagy?
{pause}
Michael: Master the following pattern and responses to the question How old are you?
Lena: 18 (tizennyolc) éves vagyok.
Michael: "I'm 18 years old." Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Lena: (Slow) 18 (tizennyolc) éves vagyok.
{pause}
Michael: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Lena: 18 (tizennyolc)
Michael: means “eighteen.”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) 18 (tizennyolc)
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: 18 (tizennyolc)
{Pause}
Michael: And after that
Lena: éves
Michael: meaning “years old.”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) éves
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: éves
{Pause}
Michael: And next
Lena: vagyok
Michael: meaning “I am”.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) vagyok
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: vagyok
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the speaker say, I'm 18 years old., and then repeat.
Lena: 18 (tizennyolc) éves vagyok.
{pause}
Michael: To make another phrase, replace 18 with 22.
Lena: 22 (huszonkét)
Michael: 22
Lena: (slow) 22 (huszonkét) (regular) 22 (huszonkét)
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with 22
Lena: 22 (huszonkét) éves vagyok.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace 18. Say I'm 22 years old.
{pause}
Lena: 22 (huszonkét) éves vagyok.
Michael: To use a different phrase, replace 22 with twenty-eight.
Lena: 28 (huszonnyolc)
Michael: twenty-eight
Lena: (slow) 28 (huszonnyolc) (regular) 28 (huszonnyolc)
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with twenty-eight
Lena: 28 (huszonnyolc) éves vagyok.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace 22 with 28. Say I'm twenty-eight years old.
{pause}
Lena: 28 (huszonnyolc) éves vagyok.
Michael: To expand on the pattern, replace twenty-eight with 25.
Lena: 25 (huszonöt)
Michael: 25
Lena: (slow) 25 (huszonöt) (regular) 25 (huszonöt)
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with 25
Lena: 25 (huszonöt) éves vagyok.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the 28 with 25. Say I'm 25 years old.
{pause}
Lena: 25 (huszonöt) éves vagyok.
