INTRODUCTION
Becky:
Hi everyone, and welcome back to AfrikaansPod101.com. This is Beginner Season 1 Lesson 22 - Talking About your Christmas Plans in Afrikaans. Becky here.
Chesney:
Hallo! I'm Chesney.
Becky:
In this lesson, you'll learn about talking about plans. The conversation takes place at the office.
Chesney:
It's between Nadia and Fanie.
Becky:
The speakers are co-workers. Therefore, they’ll speak informal Afrikaans. Okay, let's listen to the conversation.
DIALOGUE
Nadia:
Fanie, het jy planne vir Kersfees?
Fanie:
Ja, ek gaan vir my ouers kuier. Hul bly in die Kaap.
Nadia:
Dit klink lekker. Ek gaan net by die huis wees.
Fanie:
Wel, dit kan ook lekker wees.
Nadia:
Ek sal in my kop reis en die wêreld sien.
Fanie:
As jy nou begin beplan, daar is nog tyd.
Nadia:
Daar is net nie genoeg geld nie.
Becky:
Listen to the conversation one time slowly.
Nadia:
Fanie, het jy planne vir Kersfees?
Fanie:
Ja, ek gaan vir my ouers kuier. Hul bly in die Kaap.
Nadia:
Dit klink lekker. Ek gaan net by die huis wees.
Fanie:
Wel, dit kan ook lekker wees.
Nadia:
Ek sal in my kop reis en die wêreld sien.
Fanie:
As jy nou begin beplan, daar is nog tyd.
Nadia:
Daar is net nie genoeg geld nie.
Becky:
Listen to the conversation with the English translation.
Nadia:
Fanie, do you have plans for Christmas?
Fanie:
Yes, I am going to visit my parents. They stay in the Cape.
Nadia:
That sounds nice. I am just going to be at home.
Fanie:
Well, that can also be nice.
Nadia:
I will travel in my mind and see the world.
Fanie:
If you start planning, there is enough time.
Nadia:
There's just not enough money.
POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Becky:
We heard some holiday plans this time. They were pretty different.
Chesney:
Yes, Fanie will visit his parents, and Nadia will stay home.
Becky:
I think Nadia’s Christmas will be more relaxing.
Chesney:
But Fanie’s will probably have more food!
Becky:
I’m sure! Is visiting family a typical activity for holidays?
Chesney:
Yes, many Afrikaans families make the effort to visit each other during the holidays.
Becky:
Do people have holiday homes?
Chesney:
Some families have holiday homes near the beach.
Becky:
That’d be a good place to spend a holiday!
Chesney:
Sometimes people will take their own holidays next to public holidays, so that they can spend more time with their family.
Becky:
Okay, now onto the vocab.

KEY VOCAB AND PHRASES
Becky:
Let's have a closer look at the usage of some of the words and phrases from this lesson. The first word is...
Chesney:
nie genoeg nie
Becky:
meaning "not enough."
Chesney:
You have to be careful when you use this phrase.
Becky:
Yeah, it can be rude if you say something isn’t enough.
Chesney:
Yes, especially if you’re talking about something like a gift or food someone has prepared for you.
Becky:
Can you give us an example using this phrase?
Chesney:
Sure. For example, you can say, Die petrol was nie genoeg nie.
Becky:
...which means "The gas was not enough."
Becky:
Okay, what's the next word?
Chesney:
klink soos
Becky:
meaning "sounds like." Does this mean “sound” as in noise?
Chesney:
No, it refers to talking about an idea.
Becky:
Oh, like “it sounds like someone will do something?”
Chesney:
That’s right. You can use this to give positive or negative emotions about something.
Becky:
Can you give us an example using this phrase?
Chesney:
Sure. For example, you can say, Dit klink of hul Durban toe trek.
Becky:
...which means "It sounds like they are moving to Durban."
Becky:
Okay, now onto the lesson focus.

Lesson focus

Becky:
In this lesson, you'll learn about talking about plans.
Becky:
If we’re going to talk about future plans, then we need to use the future tense.
Chesney:
In Afrikaans, you make the future tense with the auxiliary sal and an infinitive verb.
Becky:
Do you have an example for us?
Chesney:
Sure. Ek sal kom.
Becky:
“I will come.” Let’s hear some examples in longer sentences.
Chesney:
Ek sal vir jou more kom kuier.
Becky:
“I will come and visit you tomorrow.”
Chesney:
Hy sal vir my die klere more aflaai.
Becky:
“He will drop the clothes off tomorrow.”
Chesney:
Ons sal nie soontoe ry nie.
Becky:
“I will not drive there.”
Chesney:
It’s pretty straightforward!
Becky:
It is! Next, let’s look at existential sentences.
Chesney:
These are sentences that state that something exists or doesn’t.
Becky:
That sounds complicated, but they’re easy and common. In English these are sentences that use “There is..” or “There are…”
Chesney:
The sentences are similar in Afrikaans. We use Daar is...
Becky:
Let’s hear some example sentences.
Chesney:
Daar is ‘n God.
Becky:
“There is a God.”
Chesney:
Daar is meer tot die lewe as net werk.
Becky:
“There is more to life than work.”
Chesney:
Daar is te veel goed om te doen vandag.
Becky:
“There are too many things to do today.”

Outro

Becky:
Okay, that’s all for this lesson. Thank you for listening, everyone, and we’ll see you next time! Bye!
Chesney:
Baai.
