POST
Dana: Listen again to Amanda's post.
Mirai: Jag såg fram emot att tillbringa min lediga dag på stranden, men självklart ska det regna!
Dana: "I was looking forward to spending my day off on the beach, but of course it has to rain!"
Mirai: (SLOW) Jag såg fram emot att tillbringa min lediga dag på stranden, men självklart ska det regna! (Regular) Jag såg fram emot att tillbringa min lediga dag på stranden, men självklart ska det regna!
Dana: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "I was looking forward to..."
Mirai: Jag såg fram emot...
Dana: This phrase is used when expressing disappointment over plans that have been ruined or canceled. For example…
Mirai: Jag såg fram emot att gå ut och äta...
Dana: “I was looking forward to going out to eat.”
Mirai: This phrase is usually followed by the Swedish word men, meaning "but," and the reason the plans were ruined or canceled.
Dana: Listen again. "I was looking forward to..." is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Jag såg fram emot... (REGULAR) Jag såg fram emot...
Dana: Then comes the phrase "but of course it has to..."
Mirai: Men självklart ska...
Dana: This phrase is the second half of the expression.
Mirai: Jag såg fram emot... men självklart ska det...
Dana: “I was looking forward to… but of course…”
Mirai: For example, jag såg fram emot en shoppingdag men självklart ska plånboken bli stulen.
Dana: “I was looking forward to a day of shopping, but of course my wallet was stolen.” Listen to the expression again. "But of course it has to..." is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Men självklart ska... (REGULAR) Men självklart ska...
Dana: All together, it's "I was looking forward to spending my day off on the beach, but of course it has to rain!"
Mirai: Jag såg fram emot att tillbringa min lediga dag på stranden, men självklart ska det regna!
