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 are you? In Hungarian this is
Lena: Hogy vagy?
Michael: The first word in the question is
Lena: hogy
Michael: meaning “how” in English.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) hogy
Michael: Listen again and repeat.
Lena: hogy
{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 “are you”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) vagy
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: vagy
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Lena: Hogy vagy?
{pause}
Michael: Master the following pattern and responses to the question How are you?
Lena: Jól vagyok.
Michael: "I'm fine.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Lena: (Slow) Jól vagyok.
{pause}
Michael: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Lena: jól
Michael: means “well”.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) jól
Michael: Now repeat
Lena: jól
{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 fine” and then repeat.
Lena: Jól vagyok.
{pause}
Michael: To use a different phrase, replace fine with great.
Lena: remekül
Michael: “great”
Lena: (slow) remekül (regular) remekül
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with great
Lena: Remekül vagyok.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace fine with great. Say “I’m great."
{pause}
Lena: Remekül vagyok.
Michael: To use a different phrase, replace “great” with “quite good.”
Lena: egészen jól
Michael: quite good
Lena: (slow) egészen jól (regular) egészen jól
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with quite good
Lena: Egészen jól vagyok.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the word for great. Say “I’m quite good."
{pause}
Lena: Egészen jól vagyok.
Michael: When you want to say “I’m not fine.” say
Lena: Nem vagyok jól.
Michael: “I’m not fine.”
Lena: (slow) Nem vagyok jól (regular) Nem vagyok jól
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time, “I’m not fine.”
Lena: Nem vagyok jól.
