Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
In this lesson, we will introduce you to some more useful phrases for hotels and the like. The first phrase is, "What time is the check out?"
BODY
The first phrase is, "What time is the check out?" In Afrikaans, this is Hoe laat moet ek uitteken? Let's break it down by syllable.
(slow) Hoe laat moet ek uit-te-ken?
Hoe laat moet ek uitteken?
Let's have a look at the components of this phrase.
First, we have Hoe laat which means, "at what time."
(slow) Hoe laat
Hoe laat
Then we have moet and ek, which in Afrikaans means, "must" and "I."
(slow) moet ek
moet ek
The last word is uitteken, which is, "to check out."
(slow) uitteken
uitteken
So all together the phrase is, Hoe laat moet ek uitteken? Meaning ”What time must I check out?"
Let's look at some words you might need while staying in a hotel because there will be times when you need more of certain things. Here are a few more words that might come in handy.
"Towel" handdoek
"Toothbrush" - tandenborsel
"Toothpaste" - tandepasta
"Shampoo" - sjampoe
"Soap" - seep
Now, let’s ask, "Can I have some soap?" in Afrikaans. This is Mag ek ‘n bietjie seep hê? Let's break it down and see it one more time.
(slow) Mag ek ‘n bie-tjie seep hê?
Mag ek ‘n bietjie seep hê?
You should already be familiar with the first two words, mag ek which mean ”can I" or "may I.”
(slow) mag ek
mag ek
Next, you have ‘n bietjie seep, which is, "some soap."
(slow) ‘n bie-tjie seep
‘n bietjie seep
The last word in our phrase is hê, which means "to have."
(slow) hê
So the whole phrase is, Mag ek ‘n bietjie seep hê? This literally means, "May I have some soap?"
