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 on the phone. After watching this video, you’ll be able to ask for someone on the phone, and to put someone on hold.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
Здравствуйте, я бы хотела поговорить с ответственным сотрудником.
(Zdravstvuyte, ya by khotela pogovorit' s otvetstvennym sotrudnikom.)
Одну секунду.
(Odnu sekundu.)
Once more with the English translation.
Здравствуйте, я бы хотела поговорить с ответственным сотрудником.
(Zdravstvuyte, ya by khotela pogovorit' s otvetstvennym sotrudnikom.)
“Hello, I'd like to speak with the person in charge.”
Одну секунду.
(Odnu sekundu.)
“Okay, just a moment.”
First of all, you'll need to learn how to say "hello" on the phone.
That's:
здравствуйте, здравствуйте
(zdravstvuyte, zdravstvuyte)
Then you need to learn how to say "I'd like to speak with [person]."
The pattern is:
Я бы хотел/хотела поговорить с [person].
(Ya by khotel/khotela pogovorit' s [person].)
“I'd like to speak with [person]."
For example,
"Hello, I'd like to speak with the person in charge."
Здравствуйте, я бы хотела поговорить с ответственным сотрудником., Здравствуйте, я бы хотела поговорить с ответственным сотрудником.
(Zdravstvuyte, ya by khotela pogovorit' s otvetstvennym sotrudnikom., Zdravstvuyte, ya by khotela pogovorit' s otvetstvennym sotrudnikom.)
Now, how do you answer this question?
Одну секунду.
(Odnu sekundu.)
“Okay, just a moment.”
Listen to it again.
Одну секунду., Одну секунду.
(Odnu sekundu., Odnu sekundu.)
This Russian sentence translates as "One second."
But it means "Okay, just a moment."
