INTRODUCTION
John: Hi everyone, and welcome back to RussianPod101.com. This is Business Russian for Beginners, Season 1, Lesson 14 - Apologizing When You Forget Something. John Here.
Karina: Привет, I'm Karina.
John: In this lesson, you’ll learn how to admit that you forgot to do something, and how to show regret. The conversation takes place at the office.
Karina: It's between Alexander and Linda.
John: The speakers are co-workers, therefore, they will speak both formal and informal Russian. Okay, let's listen to the conversation.
DIALOGUE
Александр: Ты принесла данные?
Линда: Данные?
Александр: Да, данные по рекламной кампании.
Линда: Ой, прости! Я совсем забыла их распечатать!
Александр: Это проблема...
Линда: Я могу подготовить их за час!
John: Listen to the conversation one time slowly.
Александр: Ты принесла данные?
Линда: Данные?
Александр: Да, данные по рекламной кампании.
Линда: Ой, прости! Я совсем забыла их распечатать!
Александр: Это проблема...
Линда: Я могу подготовить их за час!
John: Listen to the conversation with the English translation.
Alexander: Did you bring the data?
Linda: The data...?
Alexander: Yes, the data about the advertising campaign.
Linda: ...oh, I'm sorry! I completely forgot to print it out!
Alexander: That's a problem...
Linda: I can have it ready in an hour!
POST CONVERSATION BANTER
John: Sounds like Linda dropped the ball there! I hope she can have it ready in an hour like she says.
Karina: I hope so too. If they’re going to discuss the advertising campaign, then they need to see the material.
John: What’s advertising like in Russia?
Karina: There are different types of PR agencies in the Russian advertising market.
John: Like what?
Karina: Things like social advertisement, political PR campaigns, sales promotion, and so on.
John: Do different agencies cover all of these types?
Karina: Usually an agency will specialize in only one of them.
John: Who is usually behind advertising campaigns in Russia - foreign companies or Russian ones?
Karina: In the early 2000s, foreign companies dominated the market, but Russian companies are at the forefront now.
John: Oh, I remember hearing about some Russian companies being nominated in European-wide competitions for their campaigns.
Karina: That’s right. Russian companies have become more successful at devising things such as продвижение товара.
John: Which means “sales promotion.” Okay, now onto the vocab.

KEY VOCAB AND PHRASES
John: Let's have a closer look at the usage of some of the words and phrases from this lesson. The first word is...
Karina: подготовить
John: ...meaning "to get ready." What can you tell us about this word?
Karina: This verb consists of the prefix под, which means "successfully completed," and the verb готовить "to prepare."
John: The verb can be used in three ways. The first is to prepare something in advance.
Karina: The second is to teach, such as to prepare someone for exams.
John: And the third is to prepare someone for hearing something.
Karina: Yeah, like bad news.
John: Can you give us an example using this word?
Karina: Sure. For example, you can say, Учитель подготовил студента к экзамену.
John: ...which means, "The teacher prepared the student for the exam."
John: Okay, what's the next word?
Karina: распечатать
John: meaning "to print out." What can you tell us about this word?
Karina: This verb consists of the prefix рас, which means "to bring something out,” and the verb печатать "to print."
John: It has two meanings.
Karina: The first is simple - it means “to print out.”
John: The second is “to unpack.”
Karina: Yes, to unpack packages and the like.
John: Can you give us an example using this word?
Karina: Sure. For example, you can say, Ты уже распечатал ту посылку?
John: ...which means "Have you already unpacked that package?"
John: Okay, now onto the lesson focus.

Lesson focus

John: In this lesson, you'll learn about admitting that you forgot to do something and showing regret. Karina, how do we do this in Russian?
Karina: We need to use the verb забыть, which means “to forget.” The verb will be conjugated in past tense as well as according to gender and number.
John: Can you give us an example of the conjugations?
Karina: Я, он, ты забыл is “he forgot” or “I forgot.” We also use that for the singular “you.” We can say Она забыла for “she forgot.”
John: Can we hear it in a sentence?
Karina: Он по шибке забыл отправить запрос.
John: “He mistakenly forgot to send the request.” After you’ve forgotten to do something, you’ll need to do it soon, right?
Karina: Of course! A good sentence is Я сейчас всё сделаю.
John: “I’ll do it right away.” Can you break that sentence down for us a little?
Karina: You need the verb делать, meaning “to do,” in future tense. To do this, just add the prefix c.
John: Let’s look at some conjugated examples. How do we say “I will do…”?
Karina: Я сделаю.
John: How about “You will do…” with the plural “you?”
Karina: Вы сделаете
John: Or “They will do…”?
Karina: Они сделают
John: Next, let’s hear an example sentence.
Karina: Я сейчас всё переделаю
John: “I’ll re-do it right now.”
Karina: If you know when you’ll do it, it’s good to add that information.
John: Oh, something like “I can have them ready in an hour?”
Karina: Yes, that’s good! That’d be, Я могу подготовить их за час.
John: And of course, you can change the time for other things.
Karina: Such as за неделю or за пару часов
John: “In a week” or “in a couple of hours,” respectively.

Outro

John: Okay, that’s all for this lesson. Thank you for listening everyone, and we’ll see you next time! Bye!
Karina: Пока!
