POST
Dana: Listen again to Anders's post.
Mirai: Nu kör vi! Blå mot röd, kom igen!
Dana: "Here we go! Blue versus red, come on!"
Mirai: (SLOW) Nu kör vi! Blå mot röd, kom igen! (Regular) Nu kör vi! Blå mot röd, kom igen!
Dana: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Here we go!"
Mirai: Nu kör vi!
Dana: The second word…
Mirai: "Kör"
Dana: ...actually means “drive,” but in the expression…
Mirai: "Nu kör vi" or "nu kör jag"
Dana: ...it just means “here we go,” or “here I go.” It's usually said in situations where a person is about to take a risk or attempt something. For example, a sports game, testing out something new, cleaning the house, etc. Listen again. "Here We Go!" is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Nu kör vi! (REGULAR) Nu kör vi!
Dana: Then comes the phrase "come on!"
Mirai: Kom igen!
Dana: It’s used like the English phrase "come on!" So use it when cheering someone up or cheering for someone. It can also be used sarcastically like in English. Listen again."Come On!" is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Kom igen! (REGULAR) Kom igen!
Dana: All together, it's "Here we go! Blue versus red, come on!"
Mirai: Nu kör vi! Blå mot röd, kom igen!
