Lesson Transcript

There will be many times when the English around you or coming at you is fast and furious and you may not catch any of it, or all of it. In instances such as this, asking the speaker to say it again can prove the difference between understanding a crucial piece of information instead of spending the rest of the day trying to figure out what they just said. The following phrase will not only give you a better sense of the language, but it will also help you tune your ears as well!
In English, can you repeat that please? can be used to ask for the phrase or word you just missed. Let's break that down by syllable. can you repeat that please?
At times, even repeating the words isn't enough to understand the speaker. They might have spoken too fast. In such cases, you can say, slowly please.
We can use this phrase with the previous phrase. Can you repeat that slowly please?
Another option, and also the short cut, is saying pardon me or excuse me? This will immediately tell the listener that you didn't hear, or that you couldn't understand what was said. So once again we have Pardon me? And Excuse me? Remember, say it like you mean it with that intonation.
Okay, now to close out today's lesson, we'd like you to practice what you've just learned. I'll say the phrase or sentence, and why don't you try saying it out loud? Good luck everybody!
- Can you repeat that please?
- Slowly please.
- Can you repeat that slowly please?
All right, that's going to do it for today! See you all soon!
