Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Matt: Hello Listener! Welcome back to FilipinoPod101.com. This is Lower Beginner, season 1, lesson 20, Talking About Days of the Week in Filipino. I’m Matt.
Ice: Hello. And I’m Ice.
Matt: In this lesson, you’ll learn about the days of the week.
Ice: Knowing the days of the week is important so that you’ll never miss any events!
Matt: That’s right. First let’s see how the seven days of the week are used in daily conversation.
Ice: The conversation takes place at school and is between two friends.
Matt: Since they’re friends, they’ll be speaking in casual Filipino. All right! Let’s listen to the conversation.

POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Matt: Ice, I’ve heard that the days of the week used in Filipino actually derive from the Spanish language. Is that right?
Ice: It is! Actually, there's a popular Filipino song that is often sung at karaoke parties and gatherings that has all of the seven days of the week.
Matt: Is that so? What’s it called?
Ice: The title is “isang linggong pag-ibig” or “One Week Love” in English.
Matt: What’s it about?
Ice: It’s about a love story that starts on Monday and the relationship quickly ends the following Sunday.
Matt: Oh, that’s pretty sad.
Ice: That may be, but nonetheless the song is very popular in the Philippines.
Matt: Maybe its because you can really pour your heart out when singing it! Okay, now onto the vocab.

KEY VOCAB AND PHRASES
Matt: Let’s take a closer look at the usage of some of the words and phrases from this lesson. What’s first, Ice?
Ice: The first word is the noun “araw” which means “day.” “araw” or “day” can also refer to the time of day when the sun is out. It’s just like in English.
Matt: But there's also another meaning for this word, right?
Ice: Yes, “araw” can also refer to the noun the “sun.”
Matt: All right, how about the next word?
Ice: Next is “ulit.”
Matt: This is a noun that refers to an event or action that occurs again or is repeatedly done.
Ice: In short, “ulit” can mean “repeat” or “again.”
Matt: Can it be used as a verb then?
Ice: Yes. The verb form of the noun “ulit” is “ulitin,” which means "to do something again."
Matt: Can you give us examples?
Ice: Sure! When you use as a noun you can say “Ilang ulit kang sumakay?”
Matt: That is “How many times did you ride?”
Ice: On the other hand, when you use it as a verb you can say “Sana ulitin nila ang palabas”
Matt: Which is the same as “I hope they repeat the show.”
Ice: Moving on, the last key vocabulary for this lesson is the noun “Lunes.”
Matt: This means “Monday.” Okay, now onto the grammar.
GRAMMAR POINT
Matt: In this lesson, you’ll learn how to talk about the seven days of the week, and how to ask about the seven days of the week. So let’s get started!
Ice: We’ll begin with the start of the week, which is “Linggo” (slow) Linggo
Matt: That's “Sunday”.
Ice: Yes, and after “Linggo” comes “Lunes” (slow) Lunes
Matt: Which is "Monday"
Ice: And after Lunes we have Martes (slow) Martes
Matt: That's "Tuesday"
Ice: Following Martes we have Miyerkules (slow) Miyerkules
Matt: Or "Wednesday"
Ice: Of course after Miyerkules comes Huwebes (slow) Huwebes
Matt: Meaning "Thursday"
Ice: And what comes after Huwebes? We have Biyernes. (slow) Biyernes
Matt: Meaning "Friday"
Ice: Last, but not least, after Biyernes we have Sabado (slow) Sabado
Matt: That's "Saturday."
Ice: All right! Moving on, here is the phrase you should use when you want to ask what day of the week it is - “Anong araw ngayon?”
Matt: Which means “What day is it today?”
Ice: That’s right. If you want to ask what day of the week a day other than today will be, you can say “Anong araw” followed by the word for the time you want to express.
Matt: For example, earlier we learned the three time ordinals for “yesterday,” “today,” and “tomorrow.”
Ice: Those were kahapon, ngayon, and bukas respectively.
Matt: So if I want to ask “What day is it tomorrow?,” following that pattern, that would give me…
Ice: Anong araw bukas?
Matt: Great! But how do we respond to that question?
Ice: The response would be the word for the day of the week followed by the time expression.
Matt: So if I want to say "Today is Monday," using the pattern, that'll be…
Ice: Lunes ngayon.
Matt: All right. Now for an example, let’s say today is Tuesday and I ask you what day tomorrow is, how would you respond?
Ice: I'll respond with “Miyerkules bukas,” where “Miyerkules” means “Wednesday,” and “bukas” is the time ordinal for “tomorrow.”

Outro

Matt: Well, that’s all for this lesson.
Ice: Yes, but listeners, you can always check the lesson notes for more examples and a detailed explanation of this lesson.
Matt: That’s right, so be sure to read them. In the meantime, thanks for listening!
Ice: And we’ll see you next time!
Matt: Bye!
Ice: Paalam!
