131 submit

131 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.

120 - Grape harvest

Today Dave learned some very important words in Slovenian… TRGATEV is GRAPE HARVEST, ŠKARJE are SCISSORS or SHEARS, and the word for a BOX is ŠKATLA… or maybe it's GAJBA... or... KIŠTA! Let's just say »škatla« for now!

119 - Slippers

So, Dave has learned about a common Slovenian habit… You have to take off your shoes and put on SLIPPERS – COPATI when you go into someone's house. You can't wear FLIP-FLOPS - NATIKAČI, or SANDALS - SANDALE. It's also not a good idea to wear your SOCKS – NOGAVICE (ZOKNI), and definitely don't go BAREFOOT – BOS/BOSONOG... But the most important thing is not to be TRMAST - STUBBORN.

118 - Dave at the gallery

It’s seems Dave’s not ready for Thursday yet but he learned some Slovene today. He learned that LOUD is GLASNO, ART is UMETNOST, RAINBOW is MAVRICA. And the colours: RED - RDEČA, YELLOW - RUMENA, ORANGE - ORANŽNA, GREEN – ZELENA and BLUE - MODRA. Now he knows an EXPERT is STROKOVNJAK and THURSDAY - ČETRTEK is almost here… ??

117 - Na vrsti, v vrsti

Today Dave learned that a VRSTA is a QUEUE, to be V VRSTI means to be IN A QUEUE, and when you’re NA VRSTI it means it’s YOUR TURN. Dave was smart enough to MAKE AN APPOINTMENT – SE JE NAROČIL, which means he did not have to WAIT – ČAKATI too long…

116 - Slepa kura

Today Dave learned another Slovene saying: SLEP KO KURA – BLIND AS A CHICKEN… While Fani loves MORNINGS – JUTRA, Dave LOVES TO SLEEP – OBOŽUJE SPANJE. SQUIRREL is VEVERICA, WEEKEND is KONEC TEDNA, SATURDAY is SOBOTA and sleeping is or maybe isn’t OVERRATED – PRECENJENO.

115 - Crying friend

Dave has done it again. He proved he can be a true FRIEND – a PRIJATELJ. HE UNDERSTANDS FRIENDS – ON RAZUME PRIJATELJE. And by doing that HE’S LEARNING – ON SE UČI new words, like for example NOSEČA – PREGNANT, PUNČKA – LITTE GIRL, and FANTEK – LITTLE BOY.

114 - Dishwasher problems

Poor Dave, he thought he´d have a relaxed day before his shift. But at least he learned a few new Slovene words. The DISHWASHER is POMIVALNI STROJ, not to be confused with the PRALNI STROJ or WAHING MACHINE. Among the HOUSEHOLD APPLIANCES – GOSPODINJSKI APARATI there is also the MICROWAVE OVEN or MIKROVALOVNA PEČICA. If you are lucky, they are still under WARRANTY – GARANCIJA, so you don’t have to pay for the “servis” or maintenance.

113 - Joining the gym

Today Fani finally managed to get Dave off the couch… and that's no mean feat because he wasn't using the WEIGHTS - UTEŽI that he had bought 6 months ago… And he wasn't going to do any PRESS-UPS (PUSH-UPS) - SKLECE, SIT-UPS - TREBUŠNJAKI or SQUATS – POČEPI at home. They're now proud MEMBERS - ČLANI of the local gym or 'fitnes'. MEMBERSHIP - ČLANARINA isn't exactly cheap, but they did get a DISCOUNT - POPUST and after filling out a FORM - OBRAZEC, they can now work out together. Čestitamo Dave and Fani!

112 - Weather forecast

PREKLETO - So be DAMNED. It turned out to be a CLOUDY, WINDY AND RAINY DAY – OBLAČEN, VETROVEN IN DEŽEVEN DAN. The WEATHER FORECAST – VREMENSKA NAPOVED said it was going to be DRY - SUHO, but it wasn’t. Fani and Dave did not have their UMBRELLA – DEŽNIK, but they did have two full bags of MUSHROOMS – GOBE. TWO KILOGRAMS PER PERSON - DVA KILOGRAMA NA OSEBO, to be exact.

111 - Meeting the priest

Dave’s learning experience is not always pleasant, but it is always educational! Today he learned the difference between a ŽUPNIK – PRIEST and a ŽUPAN – MAYOR, and that a CERKEV is a CHURCH, that MAŠA is MASS, and that TO PRAY is MOLITI…

110 - Buttons and stains

Fani has a lot of work ahead of her this afternoon mending Dave's clothes... but Dave did learn a few new words again. VELIKA LUKNJA – BIG HOLE, ŠIVATI – TO SEW, MADEŽ - STAIN, GUMB – BUTTON, MANJKA – MISSING, and ZADRGA - ZIP. If he's not more careful, Dave might have to wear OVERALLS - KOMBINEZON or DELOVNI PAJAC, the next time he goes to work.

109 - Saint's name day

As Dave tries to decide which GOD or SAINT’S NAME DAY he’ll choose, he’s learned about another one of Slovenia's cultural sides. He now knows that GOD doesn't mean God. That's BOG. Next year he’ll have to get Fani a MALO DARILO - a SMALL GIFT – maybe some SWEETS/CANDIES – BONBONI/SLADKARIJE or a BOUQUET OF FLOWERS – ŠOPEK ROŽICE for her Saint's Day - her 'god'... and he's even been to a BIRMA - a CONFIRMATION or possibly to an OBHAJILO – FIRST COMMUNION, or maybe it was a KRST - a CHRISTENING. He doesn't really remember... but, then, neither does Fani!

108 - Eurovision

As Dave and Fani celebrate Slovenia's first ever Eurovision Song Contest - or Eurosong - victory, let's look back at some of the words Dave learned this evening. GLASOVATI - TO VOTE, POWER CUT - IZKLOP ELEKTRIKE, SVEČKE – CANDLES, BATERIJSKA SVETILKA - FLASHLIGHT, NOČNA MORA – BAD DREAM / NIGHTMARE, SANJATI – TO DREAM, ZMAGATI – TO WIN, and KDO JE ZMAGAL/A? – WHO WON? Well, we know that Slovenia were the WINNERS - ZMAGOVALCI this year... and for Ireland, well, there's always next year for 'douze points'!

107 - Balloon ride

It was a BEAUTIFUL DAY or ČUDOVIT DAN for Fani as she took Dave on a BALLOON RIDE or POLET Z BALONOM. It wasn’t as amusing for Dave as HE’S AFRAID OF HEIGHTS – IMA STRAH PRED VIŠINO. So, he must have felt quite scared, when the balloon WAS FILLING WITH HOT AIR – SE JE POLNIL S TOPLIM ZRAKOM. At the end, Dave and Fani were enjoying a BEAUTIFUL VIEW or ČUDOVIT RAZGLED. Well, at least Fani was, as Dave was hoping to touch the ground soon…

106 - Hail

Although technology has evolved, a THUNDERSTORM or NEVIHTA can still cause damage to your household and car. Especially a HAILSTORM or NEVIHTA S TOČO. To prevent damage from either one people still like to pull the cables out of the electricity or like Fani said “kable izklopit iz toka”, or to lower the blinds. In case of a hailstorm it’s also best to cover the car with a BLANKET – ODEJA, or “koca” in the Styrian dialect. And it’s recommended to do this before the hailstorm, or you might get wet afterwards. Not to mention, dealing with the possible damage to REPAIRS or POPRAVILO…

105 - Sunburn

What have we learned today: The best thing against the summer heat is to GO SWIMMING - PLAVATI. And if you aren’t lucky enough to live by the sea, you will have to find a SWIMMING POOL - BAZEN. But you usually can’t jump into the water there or the LIFEGUARD – REŠEVALEC IZ VODE might want to throw you out. Poor Dave learned an important lesson today. And it has nothing to do with JUMPING INTO THE POOL – SKAKATI V BAZEN. The lesson is to always wear SUNSCREEN – KREMA ZA SONČENJE. If not, you might get a SUNBURN – SONČNE OPEKLINE.

104 - Food delivery

Today Dave mastered the art of ORDERING FOOD OUT – NAROČANJE DOSTAVE HRANE. He ordered a pizza margherita and a MIXED SALAD – MEŠANA SOLATA with PUMPKIN OIL – BUČNO OLJE and VINEGAR - KISS for Fani, and a pizza diavola or “pikantna pica” for himself. He paid the delivery man in cash, but he still has to learn something about giving a TIP - NAPITNINA in Slovenia.

103 - Trip to the hairdresser's

Dave went to the HAIRDRESSER – FRIZER/FRIZERKA – at the „frizerski salon“. He just wanted a SHORT HAIRCUT - a KRATKA FRIZURA... But NOT TOO SHORT – NE PREVEČ KRATKO. He used to have a PONYTAIL – ČOP, DYED HAIR – POBARVANE LASJE, and even PLAITS – KITKE when he was younger... But those days are gone and now he's worried about being BALD – PLEŠAST. Let's just hope that Fani gets used to Dave's new hairstyle soon or he might have to wear a WIG - LASULJA at Špela's birthday party next week!

102 - Korošica

Dave loves Slovenian DIALECTS - NAREČJA, even though he sweats with them. He was PREPARED - PRIPRAVLJEN for the first student PARTY – ZABAVA. He learned new words: ROJSTNO MESTO - BIRTHPLACE, MUČITI SE – TO STRUGGLE, ENOSTAVNO - SIMPLE, POHITI - HURRY UP and NAPITNINA - TIP … the joy of every barman.

101 - First camping trip

This was Dave's first camping experience in Slovenia. He learned some new words including ŠOTOR – TENT, KLINI – PEGS, KLADIVO – HAMMER, SPALNA VREČA – SLEEPING BAG, KONZERVA – CAN, ŽEPNI NOŽ – POCKET KNIFE. And remember, there's no such thing as BAD WEATHER – SLABO VREME, only BAD CLOTHING – SLABA OBLAČILA.
