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 use when apologizing to someone. After watching this video, you'll be able to apologize and say what you're apologizing for.
Now, let's take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
Omlouvám se za zpoždění.
Nedělejte si starosti.
Once more with the English translation.
Omlouvám se za zpoždění.
“I'm sorry for being late.”
Nedělejte si starosti.
“Don't worry about it.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say "I'm sorry for [reason]."
The pattern is: Omlouvám se za [reason].
This Czech sentence literally translates as "I apologize for [reason]." But it means "I'm sorry for [reason].".
For example:
"I'm sorry for being late."
Omlouvám se za zpoždění., Omlouvám se za zpoždění.
Now, how do you respond that it's okay?
Nedělejte si starosti.
"Don't worry about it."
Listen to it again: Nedělejte si starosti., Nedělejte si starosti.
This Czech sentence translates as "Don't do worries." But it means "Don't worry about it."
