Lesson Transcript

In each lesson of this 25-part series, you'll encounter a common question that English learners come across, and then learn how to answer like a native speaker. You'll learn how these key phrases works 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.
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question “Do you have a cell phone?”

Eric: you
Becky: meaning “the person you're talking to.”

Becky: "Yes, I have an iPhone.” You’ll hear it one more time, slowly. Repeat the phrase.

Eric: Smartphone
Becky: “Smartphone,” a cell phone that has Internet access
Eric: (slow) Smartphone (regular) Smartphone
Becky: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “smartphone.”
Eric: Yes, I have a Smartphone.
Becky: It mostly stays the same, just replace “iPhone” with “smartphone.” Also, make sure to choose the right indefinite article. Now say, “Yes, I have a Smartphone.”
{pause}
Eric: Yes, I have a smartphone.
Becky: For more practice, replace “smartphone” with “Samsung.”
Eric: Samsung
Becky: “Samsung,” a Korean brand that makes cell phones. You can use Samsung as a noun to refer to cell phones made by the company.
Eric: (slow) Samsung (regular) Samsung
Becky: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “Samsung.”

Eric: (Slowly) No, I don’t have one.
Becky: And one more time at normal speed.
Eric: No, I don’t have one.
Becky: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you’re visiting the United States and someone asks you if you have a cell phone. You have an iPhone. What would you say?
Eric: Do you have a cell phone? (five seconds) Yes, I have an iPhone.
Becky: Now imagine you have a smartphone. Respond to the question.
Eric: Do you have a cell phone? (five seconds) Yes, I have a Smartphone.
Becky: Now imagine you have a Samsung. How would you answer?
Eric: Do you have a cell phone? (five seconds) Yes, I have a Samsung.
Becky: Now imagine you have an Android. Answer the speaker’s question.
Eric: Do you have a cell phone? (five seconds) Yes, I have an Android.
Becky: You want to ask that person if they have a cell phone. Ask the question.
(5 seconds)
Eric: Do you have a cell phone?
{pause}
Becky: Now it's time to answer the question with actual information about yourself. Make sure to keep practicing out loud!
