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.
คุณทำอะไรในวันตรุษจีน (khun tham à-rai nai wan dtrùt-jiin)
ฉันวางแผนว่าจะไปทะเล (chǎn wang phǎaen wâa jà bpai thá-lee)
Once more with the English translation.
คุณทำอะไรในวันตรุษจีน (khun tham à-rai nai wan dtrùt-jiin)
“What are you doing for Lunar New Year?”
ฉันวางแผนว่าจะไปทะเล (chǎn wang phǎaen wâa jà bpai thá-lee)
“I'm planning to go to the beach.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say “What are you doing for Lunar New Year?”
That's:
คุณทำอะไรในวันตรุษจีน (khun tham à-rai nai wan dtrùt-jiin)
Lunar New Year marks the new year according to the traditional Chinese calendar.
Listen to it again:
คุณทำอะไรในวันตรุษจีน, คุณทำอะไรในวันตรุษจีน (khun tham à-rai nai wan dtrùt-jiin, khun tham à-rai nai wan dtrùt-jiin)
This Thai sentence literally translates as “What do you do on Chinese New Year?” But it means “What are you doing for Lunar New Year?".
Now, how do you answer this question?
The pattern is:
ฉันวางแผนว่าจะ [plan] (chǎn wang phǎaen wâa jà [plan])
“I’m planning to [plan].”
For example:
“I'm planning to go to the beach.”
ฉันวางแผนว่าจะไปทะเล, ฉันวางแผนว่าจะไปทะเล (chǎn wang phǎaen wâa jà bpai thá-lee, chǎn wang phǎaen wâa jà bpai thá-lee)
