Education (C) RTVSLO 2017 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. http://www.rtvslo.si/podcast Dave's challenge: Let's learn Slovene https://img.rtvcdn.si/_up/ava/ava_misc/show_logos/173251238/podcastappleslika.jpg 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. 174784285 RTVSLO - Radio SI 181 clean What have we learned today: The best thing against the summer heat is to GO SWIMMING - PLAVATI.
