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's your favorite number?" After watching this video, you’ll be able to say many numbers and ask someone their favorite number.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
Wat is je favoriete getal?
Dat is zeven.
Once more with the English translation.
Wat is je favoriete getal?
“What's your favorite number?”
Dat is zeven.
“It's seven.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say “What's your favorite number?”
That's: Wat is je favoriete getal?
Listen to it again: Wat is je favoriete getal?, Wat is je favoriete getal?
“What's your favorite number?”
Now, how do you answer this question?
The pattern is:
Dat is [number].
This Dutch sentence literally translates into "That's [number].” But it means “It's (number).”
For example:
“It's seven.”
Dat is zeven., Dat is zeven.
