81 submit


ANG A young Slovene girl called Fani spent a year in the Emerald Isle working as an au-pair. After falling in love with good-humoured Irish bartender Dave, Fani lures him back to Maribor. But how can he possibly survive without knowing any Slovene? Trying to master »survival Slovene« turns out to be an incredible challenge for the highly motivated Dave, and occasionally a real nightmare for his beloved Fani. A Daily dose of Slovene language for foreigners wanting to improve their everyday Slovene, and have a laugh while doing it. Premieres every weekday at 7:30 am, rebroadcasts at 3:45 pm … only on Radio Si. ******************************************************* SLO Mlada slovenka Fani je leto dni preživela na zelenem Irskem kot varuška otrok. Tam se zaljubi v hudomušnega barmana Davea in ga zvabi, da se z njo vrne/preseli v Maribor. A le kako v Sloveniji preživeti brez znanja slovenščine? Spoznavanje »preživetvene slovenščine« je za izjemno motiviranega Irca neverjeten izziv, za njegovo Fani pa občasno prava nočna mora. Dnevna doza slovenskega jezika za vse tujce, ki bi se želeli vsak dan naučiti nekaj novih slovenskih besed za vsakdanjik in se ob tem še nasmejati. Vsak delavnik premiera ob 7:30, ponovitev ob 15:45 … samo na Radiu Si.

70 - Firefighter's paty

Today Dave feels the atmosphere of a GASILKA VESELICA – a FIREFIGHTER'S PARTY. He met a lot of VESELI LJUDJE – HAPPY PEOPLE and learned a few new words: NARODNA NOŠA – NATIONAL COSTUME, ŠKORNJI are BOOTS, OSVEŽILNO means REFRESHING, DEŽEVATI is RAINING, KRANJSKA KLOBASA is a CARNIOLAN SAUSAGE, PLES is DANCE and ROŽICA is small ROSE.

69 - Gardening

Today Dave's workout was DIGGING – KOPANJE with a SHOVEL – z LOPATO. He learned that Fani's mother has a HERB GARDEN – ZELIŠČNI VRT where she grows HERBS – ZELIŠČA. There are some VEGETABLES - ZELENJAVA that we PLANT – SADIMO, and some that we SOW – SEJEMO… For a big FAMILY – DRUŽINA it’s important to have a big GARDEN – VRT. Oh, and MELISSA (LEMON BALM) – that's MELISA – an herb.

68 - Jože, FBI agent

Today Dave learned that POPOLDAN is AFTERNOON, DOPOLDAN is MORNING, POČITEK is REST, GLAVOBOL is a HEADACHE, PREHLAD is a COLD, ČASOPIS is a NEWSPAPER, or 'CAJTNG' if you live in Štajerska, 'SCHNAPPS' is seen as a cure for many ailments… and, no, Jože does not work as a secret agent… He just finds things ZANIMIVO - INTERESTING.

67 - Dvojina

Dave and Fani are a couple, which means there’s two of them. And when THEY want to describe what THEY’RE doing, they have to use the first person of the Slovene dual form, which ends with the letters “v” and “a”. For example, THE TWO OF US – MIDVA: PLETE-VA - KNIT, DELA-VA - WORK, se POGOVARJA-VA - TALK, SEDI-VA - SIT, POSLUŠA-VA - LISTEN, se SMEJI-VA - LAUGH, se OBJEMA-VA - HUG, PLAVA-VA - SWIM, TEKA-VA - RUN, SMUČA-VA - SKI, PIJE-VA - DRINK, JE-VA - EAT in se STRINJA-VA - AGREE.

66 - Okusiti-Okužiti

What a mess! Dave just got into a lot of trouble for mispronouncing one word. In fact, he only got one letter wrong! Instead of OKUSIL – to TASTE, he said OKUŽIL – to INFECT! Dave would've been better off using POSKUSITI – TO TRY. »Rad bi poskusil torto« means «I'd like to try the cake«. »Rad bi okusil torto« means »I'd like to taste the cake«. But »Rad bi okužil torto« means »I'd like to infect the cake«. So now, Dave has to prove to everyone that he's not ILL – BOLAN, but ZDRAV – HEALTHY!

65 - Little niece Mia

Today Dave learned that SMRDIŠ means YOU SMELL, although we're not quite sure he got the true meaning of that one. He also learned that IGRIŠČE is a PLAYGROUND, NEČAKINJA is NIECE and... well, maybe it's better if he doesn't know what 'cepec' really means! Ignorance is bliss sometimes!

64 - Swimming pool or cemetery?

Little did Dave know by then that “kopališče” and “pokopališče” are two very different things. A KOPALIŠČE is a SWIMMING POOL, but a POKOPALIŠČE is the CEMETERY, the place where we bury our dead. So, remember, if you're with someone, and YOU LOVE EACH OTHER – SE IMATE RADI, always choose to go to the kopališče, and never to the pokopališče. Peace be with you ;)

Well, it does happen. You can get lost, and in this case Dave and Fani did definitely GET LOST, or in Slovene, STA SE IZGUBILA. And so Dave didn’t find the house he was looking for, but he did find out that DESNO is RIGHT and LEVO is LEFT. That a CROSSROAD is a KRIŽIŠČE, that a ROUNDABOUT is a KROŽIŠČE, that when you make a TURN you ZAVIJEŠ, that an EXIT is an IZHOD, and that when you PASS something, like a hotel, you go MIMO hotela...
