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 are you doing during the holiday?" After watching this video, you’ll be able to talk about your holiday plans.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
Что Вы делаете на День труда? (Chto Vy delayete na Den' truda?)
Я собираюсь поехать на шашлыки. (Ya sobirayus' poyekhat' na shashlyki.)
Once more with the English translation.
Что Вы делаете на День труда? (Chto Vy delayete na Den' truda?)
“What are you doing for Labor Day?”
Я собираюсь поехать на шашлыки. (Ya sobirayus' poyekhat' na shashlyki.)
“I'm planning to go to a barbecue.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say “What are you doing for Labor Day?”
That's:
Что Вы делаете на День труда? (Chto Vy delayete na Den' truda?)
Listen to it again:
Что Вы делаете на День труда?, Что Вы делаете на День труда? (Chto Vy delayete na Den' truda?, Chto Vy delayete na Den' truda?)
“What are you doing for Labor Day?"
Now, how do you answer this question?
The pattern is:
Я собираюсь [plan]. (Ya sobirayus' [plan].)
“I’m planning to [plan].”
For example:
“I'm planning to go to a barbecue.”
Я собираюсь поехать на шашлыки., Я собираюсь поехать на шашлыки. (Ya sobirayus' poyekhat' na shashlyki., Ya sobirayus' poyekhat' na shashlyki.)
