Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Jonathan: Top 25 Bulgarian Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 3: Where do you live? in Bulgarian. In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Bulgarian learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.

Lesson focus

Jonathan: In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question ""Where do you live?"" In Bulgarian this is
Iva: Къде живееш?
Jonathan: The first word in the question is
Iva: къде
Jonathan: "meaning where" in English.
Iva: (Slow, by syllable) къде
Jonathan: Listen again and repeat.
Iva: къде
{Pause}
Jonathan: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Iva: живееш
Jonathan: meaning (you) live.
Iva: (Slow, by syllable) живееш
Jonathan: Now repeat.
Iva: живееш
{Pause}
Jonathan: Listen to the entire question and repeat.

Iva: Живея в Ню Йорк.

Jonathan: Now repeat.
Iva: Ню Йорк
{Pause}
Jonathan: Listen to the speaker say, I live in New York., and then repeat.
Iva: Живея в Ню Йорк.
{pause}
Jonathan: To expand on the pattern, replace New York with Milan.
Iva: Милано
Jonathan: Milan
Iva: (slow) Милано (regular) Милано
Jonathan: Listen to the phrase again, this time with Milan
Iva: Живея в Милано.
Jonathan: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace New York. Say I live in Milan.
