Street Conversation IX
Since my favorite topic came along, I decided to brag about the languages I can speak.
Sergiu: Ce limbi vorbeşti? What languages do you speak? Girl: Engleză, spaniolă şi franceză. English, Spanish and French. Sergiu: Eu vorbesc română, engleză şi suedeză. I speak Romanian, English and Swedish.
Today we will learn the verbs “to speak” and “to listen”. Listening and speaking are two important elements to learning a language along with writing and reading.
Below is the verb “to speak”:
|Vorbește||He, she speaks|
And now for the verb “to listen”:
|Ascultă||He, she listens|
Sergiu: Vorbești română? Do you speak Romanian? Daniela: Vorbesc puțin. Tu vorbești engleză? I speak a little. Do you speak English? Sergiu: Engleză? Nu o vorbesc. English? I don't speak it.
As you already know o means “her”, we use “her” here because a language is feminine.
