Hejsan Vicky:


"Tjena Tjena" användas mellan flickor?:open_mouth:

( "Tjena Tjena" be used between girls? )


Det är ljud precis som "Tjej" vara flicka i svenska ...:sweat_smile:

( It's sound just like "Tjej" be girl in swedish... )

Hej Adolf,

Vi säger "Hejsan" ibland också istället för "hej". (We say "Hejsan" sometimes too instead of "Hej".) :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
