Lesson Transcript

Hi everyone! I’m Alisha.
Welcome to Conversational Phrases!
We’ve found that the best way to learn a language is to speak it from day one! And the best way to start speaking is to learn phrases that you’ll use in real conversations.
In this lesson, you’ll learn conversational phrases to use when talking on the phone. After watching this video, you’ll be able to ask for someone on the phone, and to put someone on hold.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
Hej, jag skulle vilja prata med personen som bestämmer.
Okej, ett ögonblick.
Once more with the English translation.
Hej, jag skulle vilja prata med personen som bestämmer.
“Hello, I'd like to speak with the person in charge.”
Okej, ett ögonblick.
“Okay, just a moment.”
First of all, you'll need to learn how to say "hello" on the phone.
That's:
hej, hej
Then you need to learn how to say "I'd like to speak with [person]."
The pattern is:
Jag skulle vilja prata med [person].
“I'd like to speak with [person]."
For example,
"Hello, I'd like to speak with the person in charge."
Hej, jag skulle vilja prata med personen som bestämmer., Hej, jag skulle vilja prata med personen som bestämmer.
Now, how do you answer this question?
Okej, ett ögonblick.
“Okay, just a moment.”
Listen to it again.
Okej, ett ögonblick., Okej, ett ögonblick.
"Okay, just a moment."
