Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Becky:
Hi everyone, and welcome back to AfrikaansPod101.com. This is Beginner Season 1 Lesson 25 - Stay Safe in South Africa! Becky here.
Chesney:
Hallo! I'm Chesney.
Becky:
In this lesson, you'll learn about giving warnings. The conversation takes place outside a restaurant.
Chesney:
It's between Johan and Nadia.
Becky:
The speakers are father and daughter. Therefore, they’ll speak informal Afrikaans. Okay, let's listen to the conversation.
DIALOGUE
Johan:
Is jy seker ek kan nie agter jou ry nie.
Nadia:
Ja, ek bly net om die draai.
Johan:
Jy moet altyd versigtig wees. Sluit jou deure.
Nadia:
Ek doen dit altyd.
Johan:
Jy moet ook nie vir enige iemand stop nie.
Nadia:
Ek doen dit nooit nie.
Johan:
En bel my wanneer jy by die huis is.
Nadia:
Dankie Pa! Haha, lekker aand.
Becky:
Listen to the conversation one time slowly.
Johan:
Is jy seker ek kan nie agter jou ry nie.
Nadia:
Ja, ek bly net om die draai.
Johan:
Jy moet altyd versigtig wees. Sluit jou deure.
Nadia:
Ek doen dit altyd.
Johan:
Jy moet ook nie vir enige iemand stop nie.
Nadia:
Ek doen dit nooit nie.
Johan:
En bel my wanneer jy by die huis is.
Nadia:
Dankie Pa! Haha, lekker aand.
Becky:
Listen to the conversation with the English translation.
Johan:
Are you sure I can't drive behind you?
Nadia:
Yes, I live just around the corner.
Johan:
You should always be careful. Lock your doors.
Nadia:
I always do that.
Johan:
You should not stop for anyone!
Nadia:
I never do that.
Johan:
Call me when you are home.
Nadia:
Thanks, Dad. Haha, have a good night.
POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Becky:
That’s a rather overprotective father, there!
Chesney:
It’s sweet, I think. He just wants to look after his daughter.
Becky:
Yeah, Nadia didn’t seem too bothered by it.
Chesney:
That’s because taking some precautions when driving are a good idea in South Africa.
Becky:
What do you advise?
Chesney:
I agree with Johan; you should always lock your doors.
Becky:
Anything else?
Chesney:
Keep your bag off the seat and keep your keys safe.
Becky:
Okay. What’s traffic like? Is driving in South Africa a peaceful experience or pretty stressful?
Chesney:
It can be very stressful! There can be a lot of traffic in cities, and taxis and the slow pace can be stressful.
Becky:
Are there any good radio stations to listen to while you’re stressing out in slow-moving traffic?
Chesney:
There are lots of friendly and fun radio stations, such as RSG.

Okay, now onto the vocab.

Becky:
When would this phrase be used?
Chesney:
Usually when talking about directions and how far away someone or something is.
Becky:
Can it be used in both formal and informal settings?
Chesney:
Yes, it can.
Becky:
Can you give us an example using this phrase?
Chesney:
Sure. For example, you can say, Hy sê dat hy om die draai is.
Becky:
...which means "He said that he is around the corner."
Becky:
Okay, what's the next phrase?
Chesney:
nie meer nie
Becky:
meaning "not anymore." The literal translation is “no more no.”

Becky:
Okay, now onto the lesson focus.

Lesson focus

Becky:

You may find yourself in a situation where you have to tell someone what to do.
Chesney:
You can do this using a friendly imperative, like Jy moet.
Becky:
“You have to…”
Chesney:
Or, just by giving a direct instruction.
Becky:
You can also use “please” to make it more polite.
Chesney:
Yes, it’s best to use asseblief in most situations, but if time is of the essence, you can drop that.
Becky:
Let’s hear some examples.
Chesney:
Jy moet asseblief die sleutels vir my los.

Jy moet vandag sluit.
