 Aonad 9 Unit 9

Cúpla Focal 

In this unit we will be bundling two questions from the Cúpla Focal recommended list. 

Short answers are sufficent for each.

 If you also attend a lesson with a teacher, you might expand on these suggested answers.

The first question is about food and asks what sort of food you prefer. 

Three sample answers follow to the question:

Cén sórt bia is fearr leat?

What sort of food do you prefer?

Cén sórt bia is fearr leat?

Cén sórt bia is fearr leat?

 

Example 1 says you prefer Irish food:

 

Is fearr liom bia na hÉireann – prátaí, glasraí nua agus feoil

I prefer Irish food – potatoes, new vegetables and meat

Is fearr liom bia na hÉireann – prátaí, glasraí nua agus feoil

Is fearr liom bia na hÉireann – prátaí, glasraí nua agus feoil

 

Example 2 says you prefer Italian food:

 

Is fearr liom bia Iodáileach – píotsa nó pasta mar shampla

I prefer Italian food – pizza or pasta for example

Is fearr liom bia Iodáileach – píotsa nó pasta mar shampla

And Example 3 says you prefer Chinese food:

 

Is fearr liom bia Síneach – curaí sicín go speisialta 

I prefer Chinese food – chicken curry especially

Is fearr liom bia Síneach – curaí sicín go speisialta

The next question asks you about what television programme you enjoy, 

Cén clár teilifíse a thaitníonn leat?

Cén clár teilifíse a thaitníonn leat?

 

Answers can simply name the programme but should follow the structure

Taitníonn Friends liom

Taitníonn (name your programme) liom

Taitníonn Na Simpsons liom 

 

Here are other examples:

 

Cén clár teilifíse a thaitníonn leat?

Taitníonn Eastenders liom

Taitníonn Ros na Rún liom

Taitníonn Spotlight liom

Taitníonn Planet Earth liom

Taitníonn Hollyoaks agus Cluiche an Lae liom.

 

You could of course truthfully say:

 

Ní thaitníonn an teilifís liom ar chor ar bith 

I don’t like television at all

Ní thaitníonn an teilifís liom ar chor ar bith 

Ní thaitníonn an teilifís liom ar chor ar bith 

 

And perhaps add:

 

Ní thaitníonn  an teilifís liom ar chor ar bith. Is fearr liom a bheith amuigh ag siúl.

I don’t like the television at all. I prefer to be out walking.

Ní thaitníonn an teilifís liom ar chor ar bith. Is fearr liom a bheith amuigh ag siúl.

Ní thaitníonn an teilifís liom ar chor ar bith. Is fearr liom a bheith amuigh ag siúl.

  

Go dtí Aonad 10, slán go fóill.
