POST
John: Listen again to Phát's post.
Nguyet : Chúng ta hãy gọi món nhá.
John: "Let's order some food."
Nguyet : (SLOW) Chúng ta hãy gọi món nhá. (Regular) Chúng ta hãy gọi món nhá.
John: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Let's order."
Nguyet : Chúng ta hãy gọi
John: The last word usually means "call," but it’s used at restaurants with the meaning "order." Listen again - "Let's order" is...
Nguyet : (SLOW) Chúng ta hãy gọi (REGULAR) Chúng ta hãy gọi
John: Then comes the phrase "some food."
Nguyet : món nhá.
John: The last word of this phrase is usually added at the end of a sentence to indicate that an action is going to be done and the speaker expects the listener will agree with it. It’s a type of yes-no question in English but with a softer tone, and it might be roughly translated as "Is it okay if this action is done?" The speaker is going to go first and expects the listener to agree. Listen again - "some food." is...
Nguyet : (SLOW) món nhá. (REGULAR) món nhá.
John: All together, it's "Let's order some food."
Nguyet : Chúng ta hãy gọi món nhá.
