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 answer the question, "What are you good at?" After watching this video, you’ll be able to talk about what you’re good at doing.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
במה את טובה?
(Be-ma at tova?)
אני טובה בשפות.
(Ani tova be-safot.)
Once more with the English translation.
במה את טובה?
(Be-ma at tova?)
“What are you good at?”
אני טובה בשפות.
(Ani tova be-safot.)
“I'm good at languages.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say “What are you good at?”
במה את טובה?
(Be-ma at tova?)
Listen to it again:
במה את טובה?, במה את טובה?
(Be-ma at tova?, Be-ma at tova?)
This Hebrew sentence literally translates as “In what are you good?” But it means “What are you good at?”.
Now, how do you answer this question?
The pattern is:
אני טוב / טובה ב[skill].
(Ani tov / tova be[skill].)
This Hebrew sentence literally translates as “I am good in [skill].” But it means “I'm good at [skill].”.
For example:
“I'm good at languages.”
אני טובה בשפות., אני טובה בשפות.
(Ani tova be-safot., Ani tova be-safot.)
