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 kind of movies do you like?" After watching this video, you’ll be able to talk about movies and ask other people about their favorite kinds of movies.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
你鍾意咩類型嘅電影? (nei5 zung1 ji3 me1 leoi6 jing4 ge3 din6 jing2?)
我鍾意恐佈片。 (ngo5 zung1 ji3 hung2 bou3 pin2.)
Once more with the English translation.
你鍾意咩類型嘅電影? (nei5 zung1 ji3 me1 leoi6 jing4 ge3 din6 jing2?)
“What kind of movies do you like?”
我鍾意恐佈片。 (ngo5 zung1 ji3 hung2 bou3 pin2.)
“I like horror.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say “What kind of movies do you like?”
That's:
你鍾意咩類型嘅電影? (nei5 zung1 ji3 me1 leoi6 jing4 ge3 din6 jing2?)
Listen to it again:
你鍾意咩類型嘅電影?, 你鍾意咩類型嘅電影? (nei5 zung1 ji3 me1 leoi6 jing4 ge3 din6 jing2?, nei5 zung1 ji3 me1 leoi6 jing4 ge3 din6 jing2?)
This Cantonese sentence translates as "You like what kind of movies?" But it means "What kind of movies do you like?"
Now, how do you answer this question?
The pattern is:
我鍾意[type of movie]。 (ngo5 zung1 ji3 [type of movie].)
“I like [type of movie].”
For example:
“I like horror.”
我鍾意恐佈片。, 我鍾意恐佈片。 (ngo5 zung1 ji3 hung2 bou3 pin2., ngo5 zung1 ji3 hung2 bou3 pin2.)
