Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
In the last lesson, we saw how to order at the restaurant, how to get the waiter's attention, and then how to order your meal and beverages.
In this lesson, we'll cover how to get the bill in Afrikaans.
BODY
Once you have the beverages and you finally have all the entrées you have ordered, you can start to enjoy the mouth-watering meal.
Normally, if the waiter sees that you have finished, he or she will come to your table and kindly ask, Wil u nog iets anders he? It means “Would you like anything else?"
(slow) Wil u nog iets anders he?
Wil u nog iets anders he?
Let's look at the sentence and break it down. The first word is wil, is the verb "to want."
(slow) wil
wil
Next, we have u, which means, "you."
(slow) u
u
The following component is nog which means, "yet."
(slow) nog
nog
Next we have the phrase Iets anders he which means, "anything else."
(slow) Iets anders he
Iets anders he
To recap, the whole phrase is Wil u nog iets anders he?
If you are pleased with your meal and you are ready to leave, you should reply
Nee, dankie. Die rekening asseblief. This means ”No, thank you. The check please."
(slow) Nee, dankie. Die rekening asseblief.
Nee, dankie. Die rekening asseblief.
This is a long response; let's break it down. First, we have Nee, dankie, meaning, "No, thank you."
(slow) Nee, dankie.
Nee, dankie.
Next, we have die rekening, meaning, "the check."
(slow) die rekening
die rekening
Finally, we have asseblief, which means “please.”
(slow) asseblief
asseblief
All together it is Nee, dankie. Die rekening asseblief.

Hi AfrikaansPod101 listeners! After a delicious meal and a fantastic time with friends, time to pay! Do you think it's expensive in South Africa?

Hey Veronika


Dankie vir die voorbeeld.👍👍👍

Thank you for the examples


To have/having - te hê (I think the translation did not pick up the 'ê'.


Wat wil jy hê?

What do you want?


Ek wil 'n roomys hê. 😜

I want an icecream.


I hope that makes sense!


Lekker dag

Hi Zani!


It is here at the end of the sentence: "Wil u nog iets anders he?" and in one of previous lessons here: "Ek is besig om 'n allergiese reaksie te he."
