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.
Какое у вас любимое число? (Kakoye u vas lyubimoye chislo?)
Семь. (Sem'.)
Once more with the English translation.
Какое у вас любимое число? (Kakoye u vas lyubimoye chislo?)
“What's your favorite number?”
Семь. (Sem'.)
“It's seven.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say “What's your favorite number?”
Какое у вас любимое число? (Kakoye u vas lyubimoye chislo?)
Listen to it again:
Какое у вас любимое число?, Какое у вас любимое число? (Kakoye u vas lyubimoye chislo?, Kakoye u vas lyubimoye chislo?)
This Russian sentence literally means “What at yours favorite number?”
But it means “What's your favorite number?”.
Now, how do you answer this question?
The pattern is:
[number]. ([number].)
“It's [number].”
In Russian, we only say the number as the answer.
For example:
“It's seven.”
Семь., Семь. (Sem'., Sem'.)
