Dana: "Finally Friday! Trying out Slussen’s new restaurant!"
Mirai: (SLOW) Äntligen fredag! Testar Slussen’s nya restaurang! (Regular) Äntligen fredag! Testar Slussen’s nya restaurang!
Dana: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Finally Friday!"
Mirai: Äntligen fredag!

Dana: Then comes the phrase...
Mirai: Testar Slussen’s nya restaurang.
Dana: The first word…
Mirai: Testar
Dana: ...means “to try out” and is often used when someone tries something for the first time, like a restaurant, a product, or an activity. Slussen is the name of an area in Stockholm. Listen again. "Trying Out Slussen’s New Restaurant" is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Testar Slussen’s nya restaurang. (REGULAR) Testar Slussen’s nya restaurang.
Dana: All together, it's "Finally Friday! Trying out Slussen’s new restaurant!"
Mirai: Äntligen fredag! Testar Slussen’s nya restaurang!
