Lesson Transcript

Introduction
Becky: Welcome to 3-Minute French Season 1, Lesson 25 - On the phone. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to understand basic phone vocabulary in French.
Body
Becky: Here's the way to answer the phone with 'Hello' in French.
Yasmine: [Normal] Allô.
Becky: This expression has only one word meaning 'hello'
Yasmine: [Normal] allô [Slow] allô
Becky: Listen again to the word meaning 'Hello. (answering)'
Yasmine: [Slow] Allô. [Normal] Allô.
Becky: Ok, now let's take a look at how to say 'This is + name.', for example 'This is Yasmine.'
Yasmine: [Normal] C'est Yasmine.
Becky: First is a word meaning 'this'
Yasmine: [Normal] C' [Slow] C'
Becky: Next is the word meaning 'is'
Yasmine: [Normal] est [Slow] est
Becky: Last is the person’s name, in this case Yasmine.
Yasmine: [Normal] Yasmine
Becky: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'This is Yasmine.'
Yasmine: [Slow] C'est Yasmine. [Normal] C'est Yasmine.
Becky: Next up is the way to say 'May I talk to + name?', for example 'May I talk to Laura?'
Yasmine: [Normal] Je peux parler à Laura?
Becky: First is a word meaning 'I'
Yasmine: [Normal] je [Slow] je
Becky: Next is the word meaning 'can'
Yasmine: [Normal] peux [Slow] peux
Becky: Next is the word meaning 'talk'
Yasmine: [Normal] parler [Slow] parler
Becky: Next is the word meaning 'to'
Yasmine: [Normal] à [Slow] à
Becky: Last is the name of the person that we are trying to reach, in this case Laura
Yasmine: [Normal] Laura
Becky: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'May I talk to Laura?'
Yasmine: [Slow] Je peux parler à Laura? [Normal] Je peux parler à Laura?
Becky: Finally is a way to say 'I'll call again later.'
Yasmine: [Normal] Je rappellerai plus tard.
Becky: First is a word meaning 'I'
Yasmine: [Normal] je [Slow] je
Becky: Next is the word meaning 'will call again'
Yasmine: [Normal] rappellerai [Slow] rappellerai
Becky: Last is the word meaning 'later'
Yasmine: [Normal] plus tard [Slow] plus tard
Becky: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'I'll call again later.'
Yasmine: [Slow] Je rappellerai plus tard. [Normal] Je rappellerai plus tard.
Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Yasmine: Allô is used almost only when answering the phone. You can also use it when you’re standing in front of someone who seems absent-minded and you want them to come back down to Earth.

Outro

Becky: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next series. Bye!

Nous aussi, les Turcs, utilisons Allô (Alo- La orthographe turque), de la même façon. (pour répondre au téléphone et pour réveiller somnanbule)

Je n'aime pas du tout parler au téléphone en cette année 2018! Je t'enverrai un SMS. À plus!
