Hello penny lawton,


Thank you for your question.


係喎,你幾時得閒呀?(hai6 wo3, nei5 gei2 si4 dak1 haan4 aa3?)

Right. When are you free?


You are right that 係(hai6) usually means "yes, agreed with something". In this conversation the 係喎(hai6 wo3) also implies the woman speaker suddenly remembers something important such as asking when her friend will be available. It is kind of similar to " Oh yah, when are you free so we can have time to discuss the presentation."

一對男女學生(jat1 deoi3 naam4 neoi5 hok6 sang1) ~ A male and a female student


一對(jat1 deoi3)~ a pair

男(naam4)~ man, male

女(neoi5)~ woman, female

學生(hok6 sang1) ~ student


Actually {一對(jat1 deoi3)~ a pair} usually is used as a measure word to describe "lovers" or " shoes, socks"

一對戀人(jat1 deoi3 lyun2 jan4)~ a pair of lovers

一對夫婦 (jat1 deoi3 fu1 fu5)~a pair of couple

一對鞋(jat1 deoi3 haai4) ~ a pair of shoes

一對襪(jat1 deoi3 mat6) ~ a pair of socks


So "a male and female doctor" is better be written as " 有一男一女醫生..."(jau5 jat1 naam4 jat1 neoi5 ji1 sang1)


"There are two female doctors" ~ 有兩位女醫生..(jau5 loeng5 wai2 neoi5 ji1 sang1)

"A couple of female doctors" ~ 有幾位女醫生..(jau5 gei2 wai2 neoi5 ji1 sang1) ~ There are several female doctors.

jat1 deoi3 naam4 neoi5 ji1sang1 a male and female doctor

jat 1 deoi 3 neoi4 ji1 sang1 a couple of female doctors
