Yooyyaa! Gara How do I… tti baga nagaan dhufte! An Caaliidha, Toomiis na waliin jira.

Tom
Hello, everybody. Welcome to today’s episode!

Caalii
Kutaa kana keessatti, miira nutti dhagahamu ibsuuf malawwan garagaraa fayyadamnu ilaalla. Hubachuun kan sirakkise yoo ta’e hin yaadda’iin, gara boodarraa si gargaarsaa. Ammaaf namoota dubbatan sadan caqasi. Miira akkamii ibsuu?

I’m relaxed because I have the day off.
I’m bored because I don’t have anything to do.
I’m excited because it’s the weekend.

Caalii
Sana hubattee? Dubbataan jalqabaa, ‘relaxed’ bohaaruu jedha, dubbataan lammaffaa ‘bored’ mukaa’uu yoo jedhu, dubbataan sadaffaammoo ‘excited’ gammaduu jedha.

Tom
But they also provide reasons about why they feel this way.

Caalii
So, Tom, akkamitti miira keenya akka ibsu dandeenyu hubachuuf qophooftee jirtaa?

Tom
Yes, I am. Let’s do that!

Caalii
Jalqaba, dubaattoonni ‘I’m’ jechuun jalqabanii, ittaansuun jecha miirasaanii ibsu fidan. Ati akkamitti akka sagaleessan nu dhageesisuu dandeessaa, Toom?

Tom
Of course! All the words used by the speakers to describe feelings end in the letters ‘ed’, but these have different sounds!

Listen to the first speaker.

I’m relaxed because I have the day off.

‘Relaxed’ ends in a /t/ sound.

Caalii
Ammammoo dubbataa lammaffaa caqasi. Jecha isa lammaffaa keessatti sagaleen inni dhumaa maalii?

I’m bored.

Tom
Did you get it? Bored ends with a /d/ sound.

Caalii
Dubbataa isa dhumaa caqasi. Jecha miiraa dubbatan keessatti sagaleen inni dhumaa maalii?

I’m excited.

Tom
Excited ends with an /Id/ sound.

Caalii
Baay’ee gaarii! Sagaleessa bareedaa! Dubbattoonni hundinuu miira qaban ibsan. Miirawwan kunis haalotarra kan dhufaniidha. Haala kana ibsuuf jecha ‘because’ jedhu fayyadamu. Mee haacaqasnu.

I’m relaxed because I have the day off.

Caalii
Dubbataan jalqabaa sababa ‘the day off’ qabuuf, ‘relaxed’ ta’e. Waa’ee haala dubbachaa jirruu ‘guyyaa boqonnaa’ ykn ‘the day off’ karaa adda ta’ee fi miira nutti horuun ibsuu yoo barbaanne xumureessaa ‘-ing’ itti daabaluu dandeenya.

Tom
That’s right! A day off makes us feel ‘relaxed’. So, a day off is ‘relaxing’.
Say it again with me:

Caalii
Good job! Egaa amma, dubbataa keenya sadaffaa fayyadamuun gaafii biraa haayaallu. Dubbataa kanatti miira maalitu itti dhagahama?

I’m excited because it’s the weekend.

Tom
So, the weekend makes him feel excited. How can we describe the weekend using ‘–ing’? That’s right! Exciting! Say it with me:

The weekend is exciting.

Caalii
Nice work! Yaadadhu, wanti tokko miira yoo nutti hore, ‘-ing’ fayyadamna. Afaan Inglizii barachuun ‘exciting’ dha jechuun danda’a!
