Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Carl: There are two ways to say that you are leaving in Swedish. The first, Jag går om..., is used when you are leaving the area you are in. The second, Jag åker om..., is used when you are leaving to go somewhere specific.

Hej Adolf.

Nej, det stämmer inte riktigt. (No, that's not completely correct.)

"Jag går om två timmar." means "i'll leave from here in two hours by walking."

"Jag åker om två veckor" means "I'll leave from here in two weeks (by car/bus/train/plane)."


Hoppas det hjälpte. (Hope it helped.) :innocent:

Så, när jag använder "jag går om två timmar." är medelvärdet jag lämnar bara två timmar?:open_mouth:

( so, when I use "jag går om två timmar." is mean I just leave two hours? )


Sedan "jag åker om två veckor." är medelvärdet jag kanske lämnar gå någonstans och stanna där två veckor?:innocent:

( Then "jag åker om två veckor." is mean I maybe leaving to go somewhere and stay there two weeks? )
