Hej Hussain,

Vad kul att höra att du har lärt dig mycket från lektionen!

(How nice to hear that you have learnt a lot from the lesson!)


Menar du "brorsan"? I så fall är "brorsan" samma ord som "brorsa", fast i bestämd form. 😁

(Do you mean "brorsan"? In that case, "brorsan" is the same word as "brorsa", but in definitive form.)

brorsa = brother

brorsan = the brother
