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 use when apologizing to someone. After watching this video, you'll be able to apologize and say what you're apologizing for.
Now, let's take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
Patawarin mo ako sa pagiging huli.
Huwag mong alalahanin iyon.
Once more with the English translation.
Patawarin mo ako sa pagiging huli.
“I'm sorry for being late.”
Huwag mong alalahanin iyon.
“Don't worry about it.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say "I'm sorry for [reason]."
The pattern is: Patawarin mo ako sa [reason].
This Filipino sentence literally translates as "Sorry you me in [reason]." But it means "I'm sorry for [reason].".
For example:
"I'm sorry for being late."
Patawarin mo ako sa pagiging huli., Patawarin mo ako sa pagiging huli.
Now, how do you respond that it's okay?
Huwag mong alalahanin iyon.
"Don't worry about it."
Listen to it again: Huwag mong alalahanin iyon., Huwag mong alalahanin iyon.
This Filipino sentence translates as "Don't you worry that." But it means "Don't worry about it."
