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.
מתי יום ההולדת שלך?
(Matay yom ha-huledet shelakh?)
ברביעי למרץ.
(Ba-revi'i le-Merts.)
Once more with the English translation.
מתי יום ההולדת שלך?
(Matay yom ha-huledet shelakh?)
“When is your birthday?”
ברביעי למרץ.
(Ba-revi'i le-Merts.)
“It's on March 4th.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say "When [event]?"
The pattern is:
מתי [event] ?
(Matay [event] ?)
“When [event]?”
For example:
מתי יום ההולדת שלך?, מתי יום ההולדת שלך?
(Matay yom ha-huledet shelakh?, Matay yom ha-huledet shelakh?)
Now, how do you answer this question?
ברביעי למרץ.
(Ba-revi'i le-Merts.)
Listen to it again:
ברביעי למרץ., ברביעי למרץ.
(Ba-revi'i le-Merts., Ba-revi'i le-Merts.)
This Hebrew sentence literally translates as "In the 4th of March." But it means "It's on March 4th.".
