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.
แม่คุณเป็นไงบ้าง (mâae khun bpen ngai bâang)
เธอสบายดี (thooe sà-baai-dii)
Once more with the English translation.
แม่คุณเป็นไงบ้าง (mâae khun bpen ngai bâang)
“How's your mother?”
เธอสบายดี (thooe sà-baai-dii)
“She's fine.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say “How's your mother?”
That's: แม่คุณเป็นไงบ้าง (mâae khun bpen ngai bâang)
Listen to it again: แม่คุณเป็นไงบ้าง (mâae khun bpen ngai bâang), แม่คุณเป็นไงบ้าง (mâae khun bpen ngai bâang)
“How's your mother?”
Now, how do you answer this question?
The pattern is:
เธอ {state of well-being} (thooe {state of well-being})
“She's [state of well-being].”
For example:
“She's fine.”
เธอสบายดี (thooe sà-baai-dii), เธอสบายดี (thooe sà-baai-dii)

Hi Thomas,


Thank you. You could check out on lesson notes where it say "The key pattern". The meaning of "thooe" is "He's/she's/ You're". Depend on situation. I would suggested. Hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any future questions. I will be glad to help.


Have a good day.

I find these lessons quite poor. You are teaching as if its a memory game instead of actually explaining how the sentences are working, imagine if the same statement above was spoken but in a different way... we only know how to say it one way.


Example above you say 'thooe sà-baai-dii' we know that 'sà-baai-dii' means we are well but what does 'thooe' mean ??!! Same with the other statement its only half explained. The first lessons when you join are excellent and explain all of this but the further on we go its as though there is no effort put in, I should have to use other sources from google to then work out what all the other parts mean.


Thanks..

Thomas.
