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 How much is this? In Polish this is
Joanna: Ile to kosztuje?
Betsey: The first word in the question is
Joanna: ile
Betsey: meaning how much in English.
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) ile
Betsey: Listen again and repeat.
Joanna: ile
{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: to
Betsey: meaning this.
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) to
Betsey: Now repeat.
Joanna: to
{Pause}
Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Joanna: ile to
{pause}
And next
Joanna: kosztuje
Betsey: meaning it costs.
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) kosztuje
Betsey: Now repeat.
Joanna: kosztuje
{Pause}
Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Joanna: ile to kosztuje
{pause}
Betsey: (You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question How much is this??
Joanna: Pięć złotych.
Betsey: "It's 5 zloty.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Joanna: (Slow) Pięć złotych.
{pause}
Betsey: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Joanna: pięć
Betsey: means five.

{Pause}
Betsey: And next
Joanna: złotych
meaning zloty, the Polish currency name.
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) złotych
Betsey:Now repeat.
Joanna: złotych
{Pause}
Betsey: Listen to the speaker say, It's 5 zloty., and then repeat.
Joanna: Pięć złotych.
{pause}
Betsey: To expand on the pattern, replace 5 zloty with 1 zloty.
Joanna: złotówkę
Betsey: 1 zloty
Joanna: (slow) złotówkę (regular) złotówkę
Betsey: Listen to the phrase again, this time with 1 zloty
Joanna: złotówkę.
Betsey: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace 5 zloty. Say It's 1 zloty.
{pause}
Joanna: złotówkę.
Betsey: To make another phrase, replace 1 zloty with 10 zloty.
Joanna: dziesięć złotych
Betsey: 10 zloty
Joanna: (slow) dziesięć złotych (regular) dziesięć złotych
Betsey: Listen to the phrase again, this time with 10 zloty.
Joanna: dziesięć złotych.
Betsey: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace 1 zloty with 10 zloty. Say It's 10 zloty.
