Help! General phrases in Albanian, Turkish and Bengali


Guest Spiral

Recommended Posts

Has anyone got a few general phrases for three children we have who speak very little English?

 

I've tried in vain to download, but the pronounciation is lost on me!

 

We've asked their parents (all of whom speak good English) and they all replied stating they don't think it'll make a difference to their child.

 

Has anyone got something stating how the following are pronounced?

 

 

Do you feel well?

>

> Do you need the toilet?

>

> Would you like some food?

>

> Would you like a drink?

>

> Are you too hot/cold?

>

> Can you stop please?

>

> Would you come here please?

>

> Can you stop?

>

> Yes

>

> No

>

> My name is.....

>

> Mummy / daddy

>

> Mummy will be back soon

>

> Well done

>

 

Many thanks to anyone who can help . . even if it's only a couple of bits - everything will be used!

Newbury Park language of the month gives examples of basic words and phrases that you hear pronounced. It covers a fair few languages.

You cant really beat getting the parents on board with this, as there are often accents and dialects that have slightly different pronunciations.

Have some holiday Turkish to offer.....

 

No...is Hiyer. said Hiya. useful

 

Yes.....is evet. said as e for egg... e- vet

 

Well done.....or Very Good....Chokeeyee......said Chokee ee

 

Please......Lutfen. said. Lootfen.

 

Toilet?....Tuvelet. said Too va let

 

Apologies for very poor spelling if turkish reader and pronunciation...but it gets me by on holiday so hopefully may help : )
