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 how to ask the question, "When is your birthday?" After watching this video, you’ll be able to ask and answer about the date of an event.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
Kailan ang iyong kaarawan?
Tuwing ika-apat ng Marso po.
Once more with the English translation.
Kailan ang iyong kaarawan?
“When is your birthday?”
Tuwing ika-apat ng Marso po.
“It's on March 4th.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say "When is [event]?"
The pattern is: Kailan ang [event]?
“When is [event]?”.
For example:
“When is your birthday?”
Kailan ang iyong kaarawan?, Kailan ang iyong kaarawan?
Now, how do you answer this question?
Tuwing ika-apat ng Marso po.
“It's on March 4th.”
Listen to it again:
Tuwing ika-apat ng Marso po., Tuwing ika-apat ng Marso po.
This Filipino sentence literally translates as "Every 4th of March." But it means “It's on March 4th.”.
