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 doing during the holiday?" After watching this video, you’ll be able to talk about your holiday plans.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
Τι θα κάνεις τις απόκριες; (Ti tha kánis tis apókries?)
Σχεδιάζω να πάω στην παραλία. (Schediázo na páo stin paralía.)
Once more with the English translation.
Τι θα κάνεις τις απόκριες; (Ti tha kánis tis apókries?)
“What are you doing for Carnival?”
Σχεδιάζω να πάω στην παραλία. (Schediázo na páo stin paralía.)
“I'm planning to go to the beach.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say “What are you doing for Carnival?”
That's:
Τι θα κάνεις τις απόκριες; (Ti tha kánis tis apókries?)
Listen to it again:
Τι θα κάνεις τις απόκριες;, Τι θα κάνεις τις απόκριες; (Ti tha kánis tis apókries?, Ti tha kánis tis apókries?)
This Greek sentence literally translates as “What are you doing during Carnival?” But it means “What are you doing for Carnival?".
Now, how do you answer this question?
The pattern is:
Σχεδιάζω να [plan]. (Schediázo na [plan].)
“I’m planning to [plan].”
For example:
“I'm planning to go to the beach.”
Σχεδιάζω να πάω στην παραλία., Σχεδιάζω να πάω στην παραλία. (Schediázo na páo stin paralía., Schediázo na páo stin paralía.)
