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 use when talking with friends. After watching this video, you’ll be able to have a casual conversation with a friend, and to say something is “super.”
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
嘿,看那台车! (Hēi, kàn nà tái chē!)
哇,超酷! (Wa, chāo kù!)
Once more with the English translation.
嘿,看那台车! (Hēi, kàn nà tái chē!)
“Hey, look at that car!”
哇,超酷! (Wa, chāo kù!)
“Wow, that's super cool!”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say “Hey, look at that car!”
嘿,看那台车! (Hēi, kàn nà tái chē!)
“Hey, look at that car!”
Now, how do you respond to this?
First of all, you’ll need to learn how to say “wow” . That’s
哇, 哇 (wa, wa)
Then, you’ll need to learn how to say “That’s super [adjective].”
The pattern is:
超[adjective]。 (Chāo [adjective].)
For example:
“Wow, that's super cool!”
哇,超酷!, 哇,超酷! (Wa, chāo kù!, Wa, chāo kù!)
