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 What are you doing? In Hungarian this is
Lena: Mit csinálsz?
Michael: The first word in the question is
Lena: mit
Michael: meaning “what” in English.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) mit
Michael: Listen again and repeat.
Lena: mit
{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: csinálsz
Michael: meaning “you doing”.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) csinálsz
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: csinálsz
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Lena: Mit csinálsz?
{pause}
Michael: Master the following pattern and responses to the question What are you doing?
Lena: Gondolkodom
Michael: "I'm thinking.. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Lena: (Slow) Gondolkodom
{pause}
Michael: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Lena: Gondolkodom
Michael: means “I'm thinking.”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) Gondolkodom
Michael: Now repeat
Lena: Gondolkodom
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the speaker say, “I'm thinking.”, and then repeat.
Lena: Gondolkodom
{pause}
Michael: To expand on the pattern, replace "I'm thinking” with “I’m studying.”
Lena: Tanulok
Michael: I’m studying
Lena: (slow) Tanulok (regular) Tanulok
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “I’m studying”
Lena: Tanulok
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “I'm thinking.” Say “I’m studying.”
{pause}
Lena: Tanulok
Michael: To expand on the pattern, replace “I’m studying” with “I’m relaxing.”
Lena: Pihenek
Michael: I’m relaxing
Lena: (slow) Pihenek (regular) Pihenek
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “I’m relaxing”
Lena: Pihenek
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “I’m studying.” Say “I’m relaxing.”
{pause}
Lena: Pihenek
Michael: To use a different phrase, replace “I’m relaxing” with “I’m eating.”
Lena: Eszek
Michael: I’m eating
Lena: (slow) Eszek (regular) Eszek
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “I’m eating”
Lena: Eszek
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace I’m relaxing. Say I’m eating.
{pause}
Lena: Eszek
