Lesson Transcript

In the last lesson, we learned how to get a waiter’s attention and order food and drinks at a restaurant. Once you have the beverages and entrées you ordered, you can enjoy the delicious meal.
Normally, when the waiter sees that you have finished, he will come to your table and ask in a nice manner, “Would you like anything else?”. In Czech this is
Přejete si něco dalšího? “Would you like anything else?”
Let’s break that down:
(slow) Pře-je-te si ně-co dal-ší-ho?
Once again:
Přejete si něco dalšího?
In this sentence přejete si is a form of the verb which in English is translated as “to wish.”
(slow) Pře-je-te si.
Přejete si.
Něco dalšího can be translated as “something else”
(slow) Ně-co dal-ší-ho.
Něco dalšího.
Again, the whole question is
Přejete si něco dalšího?
If you don’t want to order anything else say
Ne, děkuji, meaning “No, thank you.” in English.
(slow) Ne, dě-ku-ji.
You may recall that ne means “no” and děkuji means “thank you.”
Ne, děkuji.
When you’re ready to leave, you’ll want to ask for the check. In Czech, “Check, please!” is
Účet, prosím.
Let’s break it down:
(slow) Ú-čet, pro-sím.
Once more:
Ú-čet, pro-sím.
Účet is translated in English as “the check” or “the bill”.
(slow) Účet
And after that we have prosím, an expression that you are already acquainted with.
Here’s the whole sentence again:
Účet, prosím.
