POST
Dana: Listen again to Anders's post.
Mirai: Idag fick jag veta att jag ska bli pappa! Vilken stolthet jag känner!
Dana: "Today, I found out that I'm going to be a dad! The pride I feel!"
Mirai: (SLOW) Idag fick jag veta att jag ska bli pappa! Vilken stolthet jag känner! (Regular) Idag fick jag veta att jag ska bli pappa! Vilken stolthet jag känner!
Dana: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Today, I found out that I'm going to be a dad!"
Mirai: Idag fick jag veta att jag ska bli pappa!
Dana: The first part…
Mirai: "Idag fick jag veta"
Dana: ...means "today, I found out." This is a good way to start a sentence when proclaiming some news.
Mirai: Idag (“today”) can be substituted for den här veckan, “this week,” or another time frame.
Dana: Listen again. "Today, I found out that I’m going to be a dad!" is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Idag fick jag veta att jag ska bli pappa! (REGULAR) Idag fick jag veta att jag ska bli pappa!
Dana: Then comes the phrase - "The pride I feel!"
Mirai: Vilken stolthet jag känner!
Dana: It’s a strong expression to express that you are so proud you can barely contain it.
Mirai: Stolthet (“pride”) can be substituted for other emotions such as sorg (“sadness”) or lycka (“happiness”).
Dana: Listen again. "The pride I feel!" is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Vilken stolthet jag känner! (REGULAR) Vilken stolthet jag känner!
Dana: All together, it's "Today, I found out that I'm going to be a dad! The pride I feel!"
Mirai: Idag fick jag veta att jag ska bli pappa! Vilken stolthet jag känner!
