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 Are you hungry? In Hungarian this is
Lena: Éhes vagy?
Michael: The first word in the question is
Lena: éhes
Michael: meaning “hungry” in English.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) éhes
Michael: Listen again and repeat.
Lena: éhes
{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: Éhes vagy?
{pause}
Michael: Master the following pattern and responses to the question Are you hungry?
Lena: Igen, egy kicsit.
Michael: “Yes, I am a little bit.”Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Lena: (Slow) Igen, egy kicsit.
{pause}
Michael: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Lena: Igen
Michael: means “Yes”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) Igen
Michael: Now repeat
Lena: Igen
{Pause}
Michael: And after that
Lena: egy kicsit
Michael: meaning “a little bit”.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) egy kicsit
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: egy kicsit
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the speaker say, “Yes, I am a little bit.” and then repeat.
Lena: Igen, egy kicsit.
{pause}
Michael: To use a different phrase, replace “a little bit hungry” with “very hungry.”
Lena: nagyon éhes vagyok
Michael: very hungry
Lena: (slow) nagyon éhes vagyok (regular) nagyon éhes vagyok
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “very hungry”
Lena: Igen, nagyon éhes vagyok.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “a little bit.” with “very hungry” Say “Yes, I'm very hungry.”
{pause}
Lena: Igen, nagyon éhes vagyok.
Michael: To expand on the pattern, replace “very hungry” with “starving.”
Lena: mindjárt éhenhalok
Michael: “starving”
Lena: (slow) mindjárt éhenhalok (regular) mindjárt éhenhalok
Michael: This phrase literally means “about to starve to death.” Listen to the phrase again, this time with “starving”
Lena: Igen, mindjárt éhenhalok.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the word for very hungry. Say Yes, I'm starving.
{pause}
Lena: Igen, mindjárt éhenhalok.
Michael: To use a different phrase, replace starving with a bit hungry.
Lena: egy nagyon picit
Michael: a bit hungry
Lena: (slow) egy nagyon picit (regular) egy nagyon picit
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with a bit hungry
Lena: Igen, egy nagyon picit.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the word for starving. Say Yes, I'm a bit hungry.
{pause}
Lena: Igen, egy nagyon picit.
{pause}
Michael: If you’re not hungry, you can say..
Lena: Nem, nem vagyok éhes.
Michael: “No, I’m not hungry.” Once again slowly.
Lena: (slow) Nem, nem vagyok éhes. (regular) Nem, nem vagyok éhes.
{pause}
QUIZ
Michael: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting Hungary and a someone asks you if you're hungry. You want to answer Yes, I am a little bit. Respond to the question.
Lena: Éhes vagy? (five seconds) Igen, egy kicsit.
Michael: Now you want to say Yes, I'm very hungry. Respond to the question.

Michael: You want to say Yes, I'm starving.. . Answer the speaker's question.
Lena: Éhes vagy? (five seconds) Igen, mindjárt éhenhalok.

Hi Viola!


Just to double check: do you want to say "I'm not hungry, neither in Hungarian, nor in any other language"??:smile:


All right. The first part is easy:

Nem vagyok éhes.

"I'm not hungry."

Vagyok means "to be" in first person singular.


Sem magyarul, sem más nyelven.

"Neither in Hungarian, nor in any other language."

sem-sem is "neither-nor"


Did that answer your question?:smile:

Hi :)


If the answer is "No, I´m not really hungry, neighter in Hungarian nor in any other language".

How do one say that in Hungarian :grin: , Can one in Hungarian say "Nem lehetetlen éhes vagyok" ?

As for the "neighter in Hungarian nor in any other language-" I don´t have a clue as to how to say that, but am curious to know. :smile:


And thanks for this this wonderful serie :thumbsup:
