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.
Today, we’ll learn conversational phrases about occupations. After watching this video, you’ll be able to talk about your job and ask what somebody does for a living.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue:
คุณทำงานอะไร (khun tham ngaan à-rai)
ผมเป็นศิลปิน (phǒm bpen sǐn-lá-bpin)
Listen to it again. Now, with the English translation:
คุณทำงานอะไร (khun tham ngaan à-rai)
“What do you do?”
ผมเป็นศิลปิน (phǒm bpen sǐn-lá-bpin)
“I’m an artist.”
First of all, you need to learn how to say “What do you do?”
That's: คุณทำงานอะไร (khun tham ngaan à-rai)
Listen to it again: คุณทำงานอะไร (khun tham ngaan à-rai), คุณทำงานอะไร (khun tham ngaan à-rai)
Now, how do you answer this question?
This is the pattern you’ll need:
ผมเป็น[your occupation]. (phǒm bpen {occupation}.)
“I’m a/an [your occupation].”
For example:
“I’m an artist.”
ผมเป็นศิลปิน (phǒm bpen sǐn-lá-bpin), ผมเป็นศิลปิน (phǒm bpen sǐn-lá-bpin)
