Jason: Top 25 German Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 15: Do you have a cell phone? in German (In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for German learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work 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? In German this is
Rilana: Hast du ein Handy?
The first word in the question is
Rilana: hast
Jason: meaning have in English.
Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) hast
Jason: Listen again and repeat.
Rilana: hast
{Pause}
Jason: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Rilana: du
Jason: meaning you.
Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) du
Jason: Now repeat.
Rilana: du
{Pause}
Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Rilana: hast du
{pause}
And next
Rilana: ein
Jason: meaning a.
Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) ein
Jason: Now repeat.
Rilana: ein
{Pause}
Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Rilana: hast du ein
{pause}
And next
Rilana: Handy
Jason: meaning cell phone.
Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) Handy
Jason: Now repeat.
Rilana: Handy
{Pause}
Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Rilana: hast du ein Handy
{pause}
Jason: (You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question Do you have a cell phone??
Rilana: Ja, ich habe ein iPhone.
Jason: "Yes, I have a iPhone.. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Rilana: (Slow) Ja, ich habe ein iPhone.
{pause}
To say "no", in a simple way, just say:
Rilana: Nein, habe ich nicht.
Jason: Which is like saying No, I don't. in English. Let's hear it slowly.
Rilana: (Slowly) Nein, habe ich nicht.
Jason: And one more time at normal speed:
Rilana: Nein, habe ich nicht.
Jason: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Rilana: ja
Jason: meaning yes.
Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) ja
Jason: Now repeat
Rilana: ja
{Pause}
Jason: And next
Rilana: ich
meaning I.
Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) ich
Jason:Now repeat.
Rilana: ich
{Pause}
Jason: And after that
Rilana: habe
meaning have.
Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) habe
Jason:Now repeat.
Rilana: habe
{Pause}
Jason: Next is
Rilana: ein
meaning a.
Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) ein
Jason:Now repeat.
Rilana: ein
{Pause}
Jason: And next
Rilana: iPhone
which is the name iPhone.
Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) iPhone
Jason:Now repeat.
Rilana: iPhone
{Pause}
Jason: Listen to the speaker say, Yes, I have a iPhone., and then repeat.

{pause}
Jason: To use a different phrase, replace iPhone with Blackberry.
Rilana: Blackberry
Jason: Blackberry
Rilana: (slow) Blackberry (regular) Blackberry
Jason: Listen to the phrase again, this time with Blackberry
Rilana: Ja, ich habe ein Blackberry.
Jason: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace iPhone. Say Yes, I have a Blackberry.

Jason: To expand on the pattern, replace Blackberry with Nokia.
Rilana: Nokia
Jason: Nokia
Rilana: (slow) Nokia (regular) Nokia
Jason: Listen to the phrase again, this time with Nokia
Rilana: Ja, ich habe ein Nokia.
Jason: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the {lang} for Blackberry. Say Yes, I have a Nokia.
