Carl: [Normal] ursäkta [Slow] ursäkta
Becky: Listen again to the informal word meaning 'Excuse me.'
Carl: [Slow] Ursäkta. [Normal] Ursäkta.

Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Carl: Ursäkta wich means "sorry" is a very good word to remember. It can be used to get someone's attention, apologise for minor inconveniences such as bumping into someone, or excuse yourself for minor mishaps. But, if you have done something you truly feel sorry about, you usually say förlåt mig, meaning "I'm sorry."

Becky: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
