Hej Steve,


You've almost got it!


"Hänga med" can be translated as "spend time with" or "hang with" OR it can be translated as "tag along with". As you can see it has two very different meanings, you'd have to decide the meaning by the context. It can be confusing sometimes! 😭

In the quiz example, how would you say the whole sentence "I'm going to spend some time with my family this week" As stated in the lesson, "hänger med" means "to tag along", so "Jag kommer at hänga med min familj i vecka" would mean "I'm going to tag along with my family this week," which is not quite the same thing.
