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 how to ask the question, "When is your birthday?" After watching this video, you’ll be able to ask and answer about the date of an event.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
Kdy máš narozeniny?
Mám je 4. března.
Once more with the English translation.
Kdy máš narozeniny?
“When is your birthday?”
Mám je 4. března.
“It's on March 4th.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say "When is [event]?"
The pattern is: Kdy máš [event]?
This Czech sentence translates as "When you have [event]?" But it means “When is [event]?”.
For example:
“When is your birthday?”
Kdy máš narozeniny?, Kdy máš narozeniny?
Now, how do you answer this question?
Mám je 4. března.
“It's on March 4th.”
Listen to it again:
Mám je 4. března., Mám je 4. března.
This Czech sentence literally translates as "I have it March 4th." But it means “It's on March 4th.”.
