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, we’ll learn conversational phrases to answer the question “How's your mother?” After watching this video, you’ll be able to talk about well-being and ask how someone is doing.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
Как мама? (Kak mama?)
Хорошо. (Khorosho.)
Once more with the English translation.
Как мама? (Kak mama?)
“How's your mother?”
Хорошо. (Khorosho.)
“She's fine.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say “How's your mother?”
That's: Как мама? (Kak mama?)
Listen to it again: Как мама? (Kak mama?), Как мама? (Kak mama?)
This Russian sentence literally means “How mother?”
But it translates as “How's your mother?” in English.
Now, how do you answer this question?
The pattern is:
{state of well-being}.
In Russian, we only say the adjective as answer. But it means “She’s [state of well-being].” in English.
For example:
“She's fine.”
Хорошо. (Khorosho.), Хорошо. (Khorosho.)
