Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Jason:In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Greek 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.
GRAMMAR POINT
Jason:In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question ""Are you alright?"" In Greek this is
Chrissi:Είστε καλά;
Jason:The first word in the question is
Chrissi:είστε
Jason:""meaning are you"" in English.
Chrissi:(Slow, by syllable) είστε
Jason:Listen again and repeat.
Chrissi:είστε
{Pause}
Jason: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
Chrissi:καλά
Jason:meaning well.
Chrissi:(Slow, by syllable) καλά
Jason:Now repeat.
Chrissi:καλά
{Pause}
Jason:Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Chrissi:είστε καλά;
{pause}

Chrissi:Είμαι κουρασμένη

{Pause}
Jason:And after that
Chrissi:κουρασμένη
Jason:meaning tired.
Chrissi:(Slow, by syllable) κουρασμένη
Jason:Now repeat.
Chrissi:κουρασμένη
{Pause}
Jason:Listen to the speaker say, I'm tired, and then repeat.

{pause}
Jason:To use a different phrase, replace tired with sleepy.
Chrissi:νυσταγμένη
Jason:sleepy
Chrissi:(slow) νυσταγμένη (regular) νυσταγμένη
Jason:Listen to the phrase again, this time with sleepy
Chrissi:Είμαι νυσταγμένη
Jason:It mostly stays the same. Simply replace tired. Say I'm sleepy
{pause}
Chrissi:Είμαι νυσταγμένη
Jason:To expand on the pattern, replace sleepy with stressed.
Chrissi:αγχωμένη
Jason:stressed
Chrissi:(slow) αγχωμένη (regular) αγχωμένη
Jason:Listen to the phrase again, this time with stressed
Chrissi:Είμαι αγχωμένη
Jason:It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the word for sleepy. Say I'm stressed

Hello Edward,


A male speaker should always say "είμαι κουρασμένος". "Είμαι κουρασμένη" would be appropriate for females only.


Σε χαιρετώ,

Hi,

Is it correct for a male speaker to say "είμαι κουρασμένη" οr should it be "είμαι κουρασμένος"?


Ευχαριστώ,


Edward
