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 tall are you? In Hungarian this is
Lena: Milyen magas vagy??
Michael: The first word in the question is
Lena: milyen magas
Michael: meaning “how tall” or “how high” in English.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) milyen magas
Michael: Listen again and repeat.
Lena: milyen magas
{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: vagy
Michael: meaning something like “are you”.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) vagy
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: vagy
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Lena: Milyen magas vagy?
{pause}
Michael: Master the following pattern and responses to the question “How tall are you?”
Lena: 180 (száznyolcvan) centiméter vagyok.
Michael: "I'm 180 cm tall." Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Lena: (Slow) 180 (száznyolcvan) centiméter vagyok.
{pause}
Michael: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Lena: 180 (száznyolcvan)
Michael: means “180”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) 180 (száznyolcvan)
Michael: Now repeat
Lena: 180 (száznyolcvan)
{Pause}
Michael: And after that
Lena: centiméter
Michael: meaning “centimeters”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) centiméter
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: centiméter
{Pause}
Michael: And after that
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 180 cm tall.”, and then repeat.
Lena: 180 (száznyolcvan) centiméter vagyok.
{pause}
Michael: To expand on the pattern, replace 180 with 165.
Lena: 165 (százhatvanöt)
Michael: 165
Lena: (slow) 165 (százhatvanöt) (regular) 165 (százhatvanöt)
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with 165
Lena: 165 (százhatvanöt) centiméter vagyok.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace 180. Say I'm 165 cm tall.
{pause}
Lena: 165 (százhatvanöt) centiméter vagyok.
Michael: To expand on the pattern, replace 165 with 155.
Lena: 155 (százötvenöt)
Michael: 155
Lena: (slow) 155 (százötvenöt) (regular) 155 (százötvenöt)
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with 155
Lena: 155 (százötvenöt) centiméter vagyok.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace 165. Say I'm 155 cm tall.
{pause}
Lena: 155 (százötvenöt) centiméter vagyok.
Michael: To expand on the pattern, replace 155 with 175.
Lena: 175 (százhetvenöt)
Michael: 175
Lena: (slow) 175 (százhetvenöt) (regular) 175 (százhetvenöt)
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with 175
Lena: 175 (százhetvenöt) centiméter vagyok.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace 155. Say I'm 175 cm tall.
{pause}
Lena: 175 (százhetvenöt) centiméter vagyok.
QUIZ
Michael: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting Hungary and someone asks you how tall you are. You are 180 centimeters. Respond to the question.
Lena: Milyen magas vagy?? (five seconds) 180 (száznyolcvan) centiméter vagyok.
Michael: Imagine you are 165 centimeters. Respond to the question.
