Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
In this lesson, we'll introduce you to a crucial phrase for travelers who are interested in learning more about the tourist attractions they are going to visit. Learning about the history and the cultural significance of places you visit can be just as rewarding as seeing them. In this lesson, we'll cover "Do you have a guide in English?"
BODY
In Afrikaans, "Do you have a guide in English, sir?" is Het u 'n gids in Engels meneer?
(slow) Het u 'n gids in Engels meneer?
Het u 'n gids in Engels meneer?
The first two words, Het u, mean, "Do you have."
(slow) Het u
Het u
Next, we have ‘n gids, meaning, "a guide."
(slow) ‘n gids
‘n gids
Finally, we have in Engels which means "in English.“
(slow) in Engels
in Engels
Altogether, we have Het u 'n gids in Engels meneer? which means ”Do you have a guide in English, sir?"
If you would like to say, "Do you have a guide in English, ma'am?" you only have to replace meneer with mevrou. So, the question would be Het u 'n gids in Engels mevrou? It means “Do you have a guide in English, ma'am?"
Let’s hear it slowly.
(slow) Het u 'n gids in Engels mevrou?
Once again with normal speed.
Het u 'n gids in Engels mevrou?
Of course, if you want to practice Afrikaans, you can buy a Afrikaans guide. In that case, simply ask Het u 'n gids in Afrikaans meneer? It means ”Do you have a guide in Afrikaans, sir?"
(slow) Het u 'n gids in Afrikaans meneer?
Het u 'n gids in Afrikaans meneer?
You just need to replace “English” with Afrikaans.
Now, let's try to ask for a French guide. In Afrikaans, "Do you have a guide in French, ma'am?" is Het u 'n gids in Frans mevrou?
(slow) Het u 'n gids in Frans mevrou?
Het u 'n gids in Frans mevrou?
Let's try now with a Japanese guide. It's easy to find information guides in Japanese because a large number of Japanese tourists visit South Africa every year. "Do you have a guide in Japanese, sir?" is Het u 'n gids in Japanees meneer?
(slow) Het u 'n gids in Japanees meneer?
Het u 'n gids in Japanees meneer?
