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's wrong? In Hungarian this is
Lena: Mi a baj?
Michael: The first word in the question is
Lena: mi
Michael: meaning “what” in English.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) mi
Michael: Listen again and repeat.
Lena: mi
{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: a
Michael: meaning “the”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) a
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: a
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the first two words of the question and repeat.
Lena: Mi a
{pause}
Michael: And next we have..
Lena: baj
Michael: meaning “trouble” or “problem”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) baj
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: baj
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Lena: Mi a baj?
{pause}
Michael: Master the following pattern and responses to the question What's wrong?
Lena: Fáradt vagyok.
Michael: "I'm tired.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Lena: (Slow) Fáradt vagyok.
{pause}
Michael: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Lena: fáradt
Michael: means “tired”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) fáradt
Michael: Now repeat
Lena: fáradt
{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 tired”., and then repeat.
Lena: Fáradt vagyok.
{pause}
Michael: To expand on the pattern, replace “tired” with “upset.”
Lena: dühös
Michael: “upset”
Lena: (slow) dühös (regular) dühös
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “upset”
Lena: Dühös vagyok.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “tired” with “upset”. Say “I'm upset.”
{pause}
Lena: Dühös vagyok.
Michael: To use a different phrase, replace “upset” with “exhausted.”
Lena: kimerült
Michael: exhausted
Lena: (slow) kimerült (regular) kimerült
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “exhausted”
Lena: Kimerült vagyok.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “upset.” Say “I'm exhausted.”
{pause}
Lena: Kimerült vagyok.
Michael: To use a different phrase, replace “exhausted” with “angry.”
Lena: mérges
Michael: angry
Lena: (slow) mérges (regular) mérges
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “angry”
Lena: Mérges vagyok.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “exhausted” with “angry.” Say “I'm angry.”
{pause}
Lena: Mérges vagyok.
QUIZ
Michael: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting Hungary and someone asks you what's wrong. You want to answer I'm tired. Respond to the question.
Lena: Mi a baj? (five seconds) Fáradt vagyok
Michael: Now you want to say I'm upset. Respond to the question.
