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 Do you have any brothers or sisters? In Hungarian this is
Lena: Vannak testvéreid?
Michael: The first word in the question is
Lena: Vannak
Michael: meaning “there are” or “have you”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) Vannak
Michael: Listen again and repeat.
Lena: Vannak
{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: testvéreid
Michael: meaning “your siblings”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) testvéreid
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: testvéreid
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Lena: Vannak testvéreid?
{pause}
Michael: Master the following pattern and responses to the question Do you have any brothers or sisters?
Lena: Van egy húgom.
Michael: "I have a younger sister." Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Lena: (Slow) Van egy húgom.
{pause}
Michael: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Lena: Van
Michael: means “there are” or “I have”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) Van
Michael: Now repeat
Lena: Van
{Pause}
Michael: And after that
Lena: egy húgom
Michael: meaning “a younger sister”.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) egy húgom
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: egy húgom
Michael: Listen to the speaker say, “I have a younger sister.”, and then repeat.
Lena: Van egy húgom.
{pause}
Michael: To expand on the pattern, replace “a younger sister” with “an older brother.”
Lena: egy bátyám
Michael: an older brother
Lena: (slow) egy bátyám (regular) egy bátyám
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with brother
Lena: Van egy bátyám.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “a younger sister”. Say “I have an older brother.”
{pause}
Lena: Van egy bátyám.
Michael: To use a different phrase, replace “an older brother” with “one younger brother and one older sister.”
Lena: egy öcsém és egy nővérem
Michael: one younger brother and one older sister
Lena: (slow) egy öcsém és egy nővérem (regular) egy öcsém és egy nővérem
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “one younger brother and one older sister”
Lena: Van egy öcsém és egy nővérem
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the word for “an older brother.” Say I have “one younger brother and one older sister.”
{pause}
Lena: Van egy öcsém és egy nővérem.
Michael: To expand on the pattern, replace “one younger brother and one older sister” with “two older brothers.”
Lena: két bátyám
Michael: two older brothers
Lena: (slow) két bátyám (regular) két bátyám
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “two older brothers”
Lena: Van két bátyám.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the phrase for one younger brother and one older sister. Say I have two older brothers.
{pause}
Lena: Van két bátyám.

Michael: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting Hungary and someone asks you if you have any brothers or sisters. You want to say you have a younger sister. Respond to the question.
Lena: Vannak testvéreid? (five seconds) Van egy húgom.
Michael: Now imagine you have an older brother. Respond to the question.

Lena: Vannak testvéreid? (five seconds) Van egy öcsém és egy nővérem.

Hi David,

This lesson shows that in Hungarian we can express if we have younger or older brothers/sisters by using separate words.

Hungarian is very rich in words.


Thanks for the comment,

Szia:


This is a confusing and disappointing lesson. Why not simply provide the words for brother and sister, then show the differences for older and younger? Other translations show lany and fiu proceeding the word testver for brother and sister. In America, its normal to ask if someone has brothers and sisters and to not be particular whether or not they are older or younger.


köszönöm

Szia Finn,


Thank you for your comment! :smile:


It's exactly what it means!


I am a single child = Egyedüli gyerek vagyok.


If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate! :wink:

Hi,


what does "I am a single child" mean? Like when you don´t have any brothers or sisters? :grin::wink:

Szia Niko,


Thank you for your message!


Actually, there is no shortcut (yet) for Hungarian accents. What I use for other languages is the keyboard layout preferences. In your system configuration, you can add languages for your keyboard.


You can find more information on how to install it on Windows 8 here:

Good luck for your studies,

Best,

do you have a keyboard shortcut for typing o and u with single and double accents within these quizzes ?

I am using a UK keyboard in Windows 8

á é í ó ú can be obtained by pressing 'alt gr' then pressing a e i o u as appropriate

but what about the others ?
