    Description: Counting from 1 to 10



    Comments: Counting from 1 to 10 is a fundamental exercise for every language learner. By practicing your numbers, not only are you learning something you can use everyday, but you're practicing pronunciation in the language as well.



    Each language has its own set of sounds, called phonemes. I learned Mandarin Chinese as an adult. When I was a new Mandarin Chinese learner, my dad, who speaks the language fluently, made me count over and over again, fixing up my pronunciation as we went along. Focusing on my pronunciation through practicing numbers gave me an advantage over other Mandarin Chinese learners throughout the years.



    That's why it pays to practice your numbers.

    Talk Tagalog | James and Angel: Episode 5: Buying Fruits at the Market

    James and Angel are at the market together. They buy fruits commonly found in the Philippines.



    Tagalog Transcript:

    James : Mabuti naman na nasamahan mo ako sa palengke ngayon. Salamat ha, Angel.

    Angel : Walang anuman James. May gusto rin kasing ipabili ang nanay ko na mga prutas.

    James : Bibili rin ako ng prutas. Mahilig kasi ako sa masustansyang pagkain.

    Angel : Eto o, ang lalaki ng saging. Hinog na siya, kasi dilaw na.

    James : Gusto ko naman ang mansanas na ‘to, yung mga kulay pula.

    Angel : Kuha din tayo ng ponkan. Siguradong magugustuhan ito ng nanay ko. Mura pa yung presyo niya.

    James : Paano kaya itong langka? Medyo mahal siya ngayon pero matagal na ako hindi nakakakain ng langka.

    Angel : Sulit na siguro ‘yan sa presyo niya. Uy, bili din tayo ng pinya, pero patalop muna natin sa tindera.

    James : Oo, mahirapan kasi gawin ‘yan ng tama… yung tinatanggal mo yung mata ng paikot.

    Angel: Nagbilin pala nanay ko bumili ng papaya. Kuha tayo ng berde, para gamitin ng mama ko sa tinola.

    James: Tamang-tama, bibili din kasi ako ng papaya. Pero yung pahinog pa lang, kasi hindi ko siya agad makakain.

    Angel : Uy, ito oh, ang laki ng pakwan. Baka hindi namin maubos to.

    James : Ipahati na lang natin sa dalawa, para parehong tayong meron.

    Angel: Matamis kaya siya?

    James: Sa palagay ko matamis siya.

    Angel: Tara, patimbang na natin ito.



    English Translation:

    James : It’s great you were able to accompany me to the market today. Thanks a lot, Angel.

    Angel : You’re welcome James. My mom asked me to to buy her some fruits for her, anyway.

    James : I’ll be buying fruits too. I’m fond of eating healthy food.

    Angel : Here, these bananas are big. They’re ripe already, since they’re yellow.

    James : I want these apples, the red ones.

    Angel : Let’s get these Ponkan oranges too. My mom will like them for sure.They’re pretty cheap too.

    James : How about this jackfruits? They’re a little expensive now but I haven’t had jackfruit in a while.

    Angel : I think it’s worth it’s price. Hey, let’s buy some pineapples, but let’s let the vendor lady peel it.

    James : Yes, it’s quite difficult to do it right… carving out all those “eyes” in a spiral.

    Angel : My mom asked me to buy some papayas. Let’s get a green one, since we’ll use them for chicken broth.

    James : It just so happens I’m going to buy a papaya too. But I’m going to get one that’s just about to ripen, since I won’t get to eat it at once.

    Angel : Hey, look at how huge this watermelon is. I don’t think we’d be able to eat it all up.

    James : Let ask them to cut it into halves, so both of us will have some.

    Angel : Do you think it’s sweet.

    James: I think it’s sweet.

    Angel : Come on, let’s have it weighed.
