Lesson Transcript

Kellie: Top 25 Czech Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 8: Can you eat Czech food? (In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Czech learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.)
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question “Can you eat Czech food?” In Czech this is
Martin: Jíš české jídlo?
The first word in the question is
Martin: jíš
Kellie: meaning “you eat” in English.
Martin: (Slow, by syllable) jíš
Kellie: Listen again and repeat.
Martin: jíš
{Pause}
Kellie: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Martin: české
Kellie: meaning “Czech”.
Martin: (Slow, by syllable) české
Kellie: Now repeat.
Martin: české
{Pause}
Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Martin: jíš české
{pause}
And next
Martin: jídlo
Kellie: meaning “food.”
Martin: (Slow, by syllable) jídlo
Kellie: Now repeat.
Martin: jídlo
{Pause}
Kellie: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Martin: jíš české jídlo
{pause}
Kellie: (You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question Can you eat Czech food?
Martin: Ano, je výborné.
Kellie: "Yes, it's delicious.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Martin: (Slow) Ano, je výborné.
{pause}
Kellie: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Martin: ano
Kellie: means “yes.”
Martin: (Slow, by syllable) ano
Kellie: Now repeat
Martin: ano
{Pause}
Kellie: And after that
Martin: je
Kellie: meaning “it is.”
Martin: (Slow, by syllable) je
Kellie:Now repeat.
Martin: je
{Pause}
Kellie: And after that
Martin: výborné
Kellie: meaning “delicious.”
Martin: (Slow, by syllable) výborné
Kellie:Now repeat.
Martin: výborné
{Pause}
Kellie: Listen to the speaker say, “Yes, it's delicious”, and then repeat.
Martin: Ano, je výborné.
{pause}
Kellie: To use a different phrase, replace “delicious” with “good.”
Martin: dobré
Kellie: good
Martin: (slow) dobré (regular) dobré
Kellie: Listen to the phrase again, this time with good
Martin: Ano, je dobré.
Kellie: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace delicious. Say “Yes, it's good.”
{pause}
Martin: Ano, je dobré.
Kellie: To expand on the pattern, replace “good” with edible.
Martin: jedlé
Kellie: edible
Martin: (slow) jedlé (regular) jedlé
Kellie: Listen to the phrase again, this time with edible.
Martin: Ano, je jedlé.
Kellie: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “good”. Say “Yes, it's edible”.
{pause}
Martin: Ano, je jedlé.
Kellie: To expand on the pattern, replace edible with nutritious.
Martin: výživné
Kellie: nutritious
Martin: (slow) výživné (regular) výživné
Kellie: Listen to the phrase again, this time with nutritious
Martin: Ano, je výživné.
Kellie: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace edible. Say “Yes, it's nutritious.”
{pause}
Martin: Ano, je výživné.
To say "no", in a simple way, just say:
Martin: Ne, nejím.
Kellie: Which is like saying “No, I don’t.” in English. Let's hear it slowly.
Martin: (Slowly) Ne, nejím.
Kellie: And one more time at normal speed:
Martin: Ne, nejím.
Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting the Czech Republic and someone asks if you can eat Czech food. You want to answer that it is delicious. Respond to the question.
Martin: Jíš české jídlo? (five seconds) Ano, je výborné.
Kellie: Now, you want to say that it's good. Respond to the question.
Martin: Jíš české jídlo? (five seconds) Ano, je dobré.
Kellie: Now, you want to say that it's edible. Answer the speaker's question.
Martin: Jíš české jídlo? (five seconds) Ano, je jedlé.
Kellie: Now, you want to say that it's nutritious. Respond to the question.
Martin: Jíš české jídlo? (five seconds) Ano, je výživné.
Kellie: Now you want to ask someone if they can eat Czech food. Ask the question
(5 seconds)
Martin: Jíš české jídlo?
{pause}
Kellie: Now it's time to answer the question with actual information about yourself.
Martin: Jíš české jídlo?
{pause}
Kellie: This is the end of Lesson 8
