Camille: I'm Camille.
Eric: In this lesson, you’ll learn how to give warnings and cautions. The conversation takes place at the storage room.
Camille: It's between Jean and Hannah.
Eric: The speakers are friends, so they will use informal Filipino. Okay, let's listen to the conversation.
DIALOGUE
Jean: Hannah, anong ginagawa mo? Naku delikado ‘yan!

Eric: Listen to the conversation with the English translation
Jean: Hannah, what are you doing? Hey, that's dangerous!
Hannah: Sorry Jean. It’s because I need to get this book.
Jean: Alright, I would have helped you. Next time, be careful.
Hannah: Thanks. By the way, have you seen them?
Jean: Them?
Hannah: Judy and Carlo.
Jean: No, why?
Hannah: They were looking for you earlier.
Jean: Seriously? Why?
Hannah: They were inviting us to go the mall later.
Jean: Really? Then alright let's just go together.
Hannah: Let's just wait for them at the mall.
POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Eric: In this lesson’s dialogue we’re going to the mall.
Camille: Yeah, Jean and Hannah are going to meet up with friends.
Eric: From what we’ve said in previous lessons, it seems like the Philippines is a very social place.
Camille: That’s right. Just don’t expect your friends to be on time...
Eric: What do you mean?
Camille: Well, people in the Philippines are not particularly strict on time. We call this “Filipino Time”.
Eric: Really? It’s so common that there’s a phrase for it?
Camille: Yeah. I think it's mostly because there is always heavy traffic, so people tend to expect others to be late. So don’t be angry if your Filipino friends are late.
Eric: They’re just on Filipino Time.
Camille: Right. Even events sometimes start late.
Eric: I’ll keep that in mind! Where do friends usually meet?
Camille: It’s often at the mall, like in the dialogue.
Eric: Okay, now onto the vocab.

KEY VOCAB AND PHRASES
Eric: Let's have a closer look at the usage of some of the words and phrases from this lesson. The first phrase is..
Camille: sabay tayo
Eric: meaning "go together"
Eric: What can you tell us about this phrase?
Camille: There are two words. The first word is sabay meaning “simultaneously” or “at the same time”.
Eric: And the second word?
Camille: It’s the pronoun tayo, meaning “we”.
Eric: So together they mean “go together”.
Camille: That’s right. We can use this phrase when we want to say to someone that we want to go somewhere together or do something together.
Eric: Can you give us an example using this phrase?
Camille: Sure. For example, you can say.. Sabay tayo mamaya bumili ng pagkain.
Eric: ..which means "Let's buy food together later. " Okay, what's the next word?
Camille: mag-antay
Eric: meaning "to wait"
Eric: What can you tell us about this?
Camille: This is a verb that means “to wait”. It’s a casual version of the verb maghintay. You know how people tend to be lazy with words and cut some letters, right?
Eric: Right. So how do we conjugate it?
Camille: The past tense is nag-antay and the future tense is mag-aantay.
Eric: Ok. Can it be used in both formal and informal situations?
Camille: Yes, and it can be even more casual, if you change it to ng maghintay.
Eric: Can you give us an example using this word?
Camille: Sure. For example, you can say.. Hindi ko gusto mag-antay sa ibang tao.
Eric: .. which means "I don't want to wait for other people. " Okay, now onto the lesson focus.

Lesson focus

Eric: In this lesson, you'll learn how to give warnings and cautions.
Eric:The dialogue in this lesson opened with Jean warning Hannah.
Camille: Yes, it’s important to be able to give warnings, and probably more important to understand them.
Eric: Definitely. So let’s look at some of the warnings and cautions we might hear. Let’s begin with warnings we’ll give to other people.
Camille: There are a few ways to say “That’s dangerous”. You can say delikado iyan, mapanganib iyan, or peligroso iyan.
Eric: How do I say “it’s dangerous here”?
Camille: Mapanganib dito. Or Hindi ligtas dito is “It’s not safe here.”
Eric: Now, how about some less serious warnings, maybe more general things? I think that a nice thing to say to people is “take care”.
Camille: That is ingat. Or we can say alagaan mo ang sarili mo.
Eric: What does that mean?
Camille: “Take care of yourself”.
Eric: How about “be careful”?
Camille: If you’re saying it to one person, you can say Mag-ingat ka. Or, to several people Mag-ingat kayo.
Eric: In that example, the pronoun changed depending on whether it was one person or several people. So, let’s look at pronouns a little.
Camille: Most Filipino pronouns are gender neutral, so we don’t have different ones for males and females.
Eric: That’s good, it means less to remember!
Camille: Right! In Filipino, first person singular, or “I” is ako. The second person singular, “you” is ikaw.
Eric: How about “he” and “she?” Is that the same word?
Camille: Yes, it is. We can use siya for both “he” and “she”.
Eric: How about some plural pronouns? What is “we”?
Camille: Ah, there are several for “we.” Tayo, kami and namin.
Eric: Why so many?
Camille: We use tayo when the speaker is referring to a group that includes the speaker and the person they are talking to. Kami is used to refer to a group including the speaker, but not the person they are talking to.
Eric: Right, got it. Possessive pronouns are also important. How do we say something is “mine” or “hers”?
Camille: The pronoun for “mine” is akin. For “his” or “hers” we can use either kanya or niya. For example, Kanya ba ito. meaning “Is this hers?”
Eric: Listeners, there are many different pronouns, so be sure to check them all out in the lesson notes!

Outro

Eric: Okay, that’s all for this lesson. Thank you for listening, everyone, and we’ll see you next time! Bye!
Camille: Hanggang sa muli!
