Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Betsey: In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Polish learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. 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

Betsey: In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question Do you have a cell phone? In Polish this is
Joanna: Czy masz telefon komórkowy?
Betsey: The first word in the question is
Joanna: czy
Betsey: which is a question marker.
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) czy
Betsey: Listen again and repeat.
Joanna: czy
{Pause}
Betsey: 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
Joanna: masz
Betsey: meaning you have.
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) masz
Betsey: Now repeat.
Joanna: masz
{Pause}
Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Joanna: czy masz
{pause}
And next
Joanna: telefon
Betsey: meaning phone.
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) telefon
Betsey: Now repeat.
Joanna: telefon
{Pause}
Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Joanna: czy masz telefon
{pause}
And after that
Joanna: komórkowy
Betsey: meaning mobile.
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) komórkowy
Betsey: Now repeat.
Joanna: komórkowy
{Pause}
Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Joanna: czy masz telefon komórkowy
{pause}
Betsey: (You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question Do you have a cell phone??
Joanna: Tak, mam iPhone'a.
Betsey: "Yes, I have an iPhone.. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Joanna: (Slow) Tak, mam iPhone'a.
{pause}
To say "no", in a simple way, just say:
Joanna: Nie mam.
Betsey: Which is like saying I don't have. in English. Let's hear it slowly.
Joanna: (Slowly) Nie mam.
Betsey: And one more time at normal speed:
Joanna: Nie mam.
Betsey: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Joanna: tak
Betsey: meaning yes.
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) tak
Betsey: Now repeat
Joanna: tak
{Pause}
Betsey: Next is
Joanna: mam
meaning I have.
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) mam
Betsey: Now repeat.
Joanna: mam
{Pause}
Betsey: And after that
Joanna: iPhone'a
Betsey: which is “iPhone.”
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) iPhone'a
Betsey: Now repeat.
Joanna: iPhone'a
{Pause}
Betsey: Listen to the speaker say, Yes, I have an iPhone., and then repeat.
Joanna: Tak, mam iPhone'a.
{pause}
Betsey: To expand on the pattern, replace iPhone with Samsung.
Joanna: Samsunga
Betsey: Samsung
Joanna: (slow) Samsunga (regular) Samsunga
Betsey: Listen to the phrase again, this time with Samsung
Joanna: Tak, mam Samsunga.
Betsey: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace iPhone. Say Yes, I have a Samsung.
{pause}
Joanna: Tak, mam Samsunga.
Betsey: To use a different phrase, replace Samsung with Nokia.
Joanna: Nokię
Betsey: Nokia
Joanna: (slow) Nokię (regular) Nokię
Betsey: Listen to the phrase again, this time with Nokia
Joanna: Tak, mam Nokię.
Betsey: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the Samsung. Say Yes, I have a Nokia.
{pause}
Joanna: Tak, mam Nokię.
Betsey: To expand on the pattern, replace Nokia with Motorola.
Joanna: Motorolę
Betsey: Motorola
Joanna: (slow) Motorolę (regular) Motorolę
Betsey: Listen to the phrase again, this time with Motorola
Joanna: Tak, mam Motorolę.
