Lesson Transcript

Hi everyone! I’m Alisha.
Welcome to Conversational Phrases!
We’ve found that the best way to learn a language is to speak it from day one! And the best way to start speaking is to learn phrases that you’ll use in real conversations.
In this lesson, you’ll learn conversational phrases to answer the question, "What's your favorite number?" After watching this video, you’ll be able to say many numbers and ask someone their favorite number.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
你最喜欢的数字是多少? (Nǐ zuì xǐhuān de shùzì shì duōshǎo?)
我最喜欢的数字是七。 (Wǒ zuì xǐhuān de shùzì shì qī.)
Once more with the English translation.
你最喜欢的数字是多少? (Nǐ zuì xǐhuān de shùzì shì duōshǎo?)
“What's your favorite number?”
我最喜欢的数字是七。 (Wǒ zuì xǐhuān de shùzì shì qī.)
“It's seven.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say “What's your favorite number?”
That's:
你最喜欢的数字是多少? (Nǐ zuì xǐhuān de shùzì shì duōshǎo?)
Listen to it again:
你最喜欢的数字是多少?, 你最喜欢的数字是多少? (Nǐ zuì xǐhuān de shùzì shì duōshǎo?, Nǐ zuì xǐhuān de shùzì shì duōshǎo?)
This Chinese sentence literally means “Your favorite number is how much?”
But it means “What's your favorite number?".
Now, how do you answer this question?
The pattern is:
我最喜欢的数字是[number]。 (Wǒ zuì xǐhuān de shùzì shì [number].)
This Chinese sentence literally means “My favorite number is [number].”
For example:
“It's seven.”
我最喜欢的数字是七。, 我最喜欢的数字是七。 (Wǒ zuì xǐhuān de shùzì shì qī., Wǒ zuì xǐhuān de shùzì shì qī.)
