English Speaker 1

11
How do you say _____?
English Speaker 1

If you share a common language with your English partner, this is how you would ask them how to say something in English. For example:
Teacher
fr
13
How do you say "Bonjour"?
English Speaker 1
en/fr
14
To which they would reply:
Teacher
fr
15
Hello.
English Speaker 2

At this point it would be polite to thank your partner by saying:
Teacher
fr
17
Thank you.
English Speaker 2
en
18
Thank you.
English Speaker 2

The polite reply to "Thank you" is "You're welcome".
Teacher

You're welcome.
English Speaker 1

We will leave you with one more useful phrase for practicing English.
Teacher

If at any point, you can't hear wat someone said or need to hear it a second time to try and understand what it means, you can ask the speaker to repeat what they have just said by saying:
Teacher
fr
28
Can you repeat that?
English Speaker 1
en
29
Can you repeat that?
English Speaker 1
en

Listen to how that might work in the dialogue we just listened to.
Teacher
fr
31
How do you say "Boujour"?
English Speaker 1
en/fr
32
"Hello".
English Speaker 2
en
33
Can you repeat that?
English Speaker 1
en
34
"Hello".
English Speaker 2
en
35
Thank you.
English Speaker 1

In later lessons we will use these basic phrases regularly so, if you forget some of this tomorrow, it is worth listening to this lesson again. Until then, congratulations on beginning to learn English!
