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 much is this? In Hungarian this is
Lena: Ez mennyibe kerül?
Michael: The first word in the question is
Lena: ez
Michael: meaning “this” in English.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) ez
Michael: Listen again and repeat.
Lena: ez
{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: mennyibe
Michael: meaning “how much.”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) mennyibe
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: mennyibe
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Lena: ez mennyibe
{pause}
Michael: And next
Lena: kerül
Michael: meaning “to cost.”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) kerül
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: kerül
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Lena: Ez mennyibe kerül?
{pause}
Michael: Master the following pattern and responses to the question How much is this?
Lena: 40 (negyven) forint.
Michael: "It's 40 forint.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Lena: (Slow) 40 (negyven) forint.
{pause}
Michael: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word is
Lena: 40 (negyven)
Michael: meaning “forty”.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) 40 (negyven)
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: 40 (negyven)
{Pause}
Michael: And next
Lena: forint
Michael: meaning “forint”, the Hungarian currency.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) forint
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: forint
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the speaker say, It's 40 forint., and then repeat.
Lena: 40 (negyven) forint.
{pause}
Michael: To use a different phrase, replace 40 with 800.
Lena: 800 (nyolcszáz)
Michael: 800
Lena: (slow) 800 (nyolcszáz) (regular) 800 (nyolcszáz)
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with 800
Lena: 800 (nyolcszáz) forint.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace 40 with 800. Say It's 800 forint.
{pause}
Lena: 800 (nyolcszáz) forint.
Michael: To expand on the pattern, replace 800 with 1,000.
Lena: 1,000 (ezer)
Michael: 1,000
Lena: (slow) 1,000 (ezer) (regular) 1,000 (ezer)
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with 1,000
Lena: 1,000 (ezer) forint.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the word for 800. Say It's 1,000 forint.
{pause}
Lena: 1,000 (ezer) forint.
Michael: To make another phrase, replace 1,000 with 10,000
Lena: 10,000 (tízezer)
Michael: 10,000
Lena: (slow) 10,000 (tízezer) (regular) 10,000 (tízezer)
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with 10,000
Lena: 10,000 (tízezer) forint.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the word for 10,000. Say It's 10,000 forint.
{pause}
Lena: 10,000 (tízezer) forint.
QUIZ
Michael: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting Hungary and someone asks you how much something is. It is 40 forint. Respond to the question.
Lena: Ez mennyibe kerül? (five seconds) 40 (negyven) forint.
Michael: Now imagine it's 800 forint. Respond to the question.
