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.
Today, we’ll learn conversational phrases about occupations. After watching this video, you’ll be able to talk about your job and ask what somebody does for a living.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue:
Anong trabaho mo?
Ako ay isang pintor.
Listen to it again. Now, with the English translation:
Anong trabaho mo?
“What do you do?”
Ako ay isang pintor.
“I’m an artist.”
First of all, you need to learn how to say “What do you do?”
That's: Anong trabaho mo?
Listen to it again: Anong trabaho mo?, Anong trabaho mo?
This Filipino sentence literally translates into “What is your work?,” but it means “What do you do?” in English.
Now, how do you answer this question?
This is the pattern you’ll need:
Ako ay isang [your occupation].
“I’m a/an [your occupation].”
For example:
“I’m an artist.”
Ako ay isang pintor., Ako ay isang pintor.

Hi Justin Aragon,

Thank you for your comment! You're right that since there is no direct translation for stagehand, you can use it or borrow it directly from English or describe what you do in Filipino. Salamat!!
