POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Jessi: Wow, Karen, this was quite the dialog today.
Karen: Yes, we're hearing a sales pitch from a guy selling tours... so things like this can be overwhelming.
Jessi: Yes, there were a lot of details.
Karen: There's Isla Mujeres, there's Tulum... Jimmy is interested in the trip to Tulum.
Jessi: Right. Now the Tulum tour sounds good.. there's cave exploring in the morning, lunch, and then the ruins at Tulum in the afternoon. And then later they go into town, to buy souvenirs, of course. now Jimmy wants to know if the guide speaks English.
Karen: She does, she speaks a bunch of languages, English, French, Mandarin... Spanish, or course.
Jessi: Wow, they really have it down to a science.
Karen: Tourism is very important on the Mayan Riviera. In fact, they even offer to pick Jimmy up at his hotel.
Jessi: Slick. Very slick.
Jessi: Alright, let's move on to the vocab.

VOCAB AND PHRASE USAGE
Jessi: Let's take a closer look at the usage for the vocab and phrases from this lesson.
Karen: Sure. The first word we'll hear is luego.
Jessi: Luego. two syllables, folks, lue,go. It means later, or subsequently. luego.
Karen: Luego. Next an adverb.. después.
Jessi: Después.. it means afterward... después.
Karen: Después. Ok, next el pueblo.
Jessi: El pueblo.. this is the town.. in this case we're talking about the town of Tulum. el pueblo.
Karen: El pueblo. Ok, next is el guía.
Jessi: El guía. this is the guide, it's the person who guides you. It can also be the book in your hand. El guía.
Karen: You know, in Jimmy's tour, it's a lady, so she's la guía.
Jessi: Ok, fair enough.
Karen: And the last item is a phrase. Muy bien.
Jessi: Muy bien, very well. a phrase of approval. muy bien.
LESSON FOCUS
Jessi: There is way too much to talk about in this lesson, so this time, I only want to focus on one simple aspect of it.
Karen: Ok, which one.
Jessi: Let's do the languages. Jimmy wanted to know if the guide spoke English
Karen: El inglés.
Jessi: and you find out that she not only does speak inglés, but she also speaks French.
Karen: Which is, el frances.
Jessi: and Mandarin.
Karen: Which is, el mandarín.
Jessi: Of course, Spanish.
Karen: Which is, el español.
Jessi: ok, so you notice that all these languages are masculine, when we list them here, we're using the masculine article el. That's important, actually, the only time you don't use el is when you've got the verb hablar with a language. Hablar is to speak.
Karen: So hablo español.
Jessi: No el. So we don’t say “hablo el español.” That’s a no-no.
Karen: Yeah, that’s right. Hablo español. Jessi, what languages do you speak?
Jessi: Well… Yo hablo inglés, español y japonés.
Karen: That’s the one we didn’t go over, japonés, Japanese.
Jessi: Yes, el japonés. By the way, how would you ask if someone can speak such and such a language?
Karen: We saw this in the dialogue, actually, Jimmy asked ¿habla inglés el guía? talking about the tour guide.
Jessi: Right, you say habla, plus the language you’re talking about, and you use Rising intonation. The subject can come before or after the phrase, ¿habla inglés el guía? Or ¿el guía habla inglés? Both are ok.
Karen: That’s right. Can we go over some more languages?
OUTRO
Jessi: Actually, we’re starting to run out of time. But I'll tell you what, we'll put a list of languages in the lesson notes, which you can find at www.SpanishPod101.com, and also, if you want, we can start a list in the comments section of this lesson. Alright, that's going to do it for today.
Karen: Thanks for listening, hasta luego.
Jessi: Until next time!
