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.
Bonjour, je voudrais parler avec le responsable.
D'accord, un instant.
Once more with the English translation.
Bonjour, je voudrais parler avec le responsable.
“Hello, I'd like to speak with the person in charge.”
D'accord, un instant.
“Okay, just a moment.”
First of all, you'll need to learn how to say "hello" on the phone.
That's:
bonjour, bonjour
Then you need to learn how to say "I'd like to speak with [person]."
The pattern is:
Je voudrais parler avec [person].
“I'd like to speak with [person]."
For example,
"Hello, I'd like to speak with the person in charge."
Bonjour, je voudrais parler avec le responsable., Bonjour, je voudrais parler avec le responsable.
Now, how do you answer this question?
D'accord, un instant.
“Okay, just a moment.”
Listen to it again.
D'accord, un instant., D'accord, un instant.
This French sentence translates as "Alright, one moment."
But it means "Okay, just a moment."
