INTRODUCTION

Dana: Hi, everyone. I'm Dana.
Mirai: And I'm Mirai.
Dana: In this lesson, you'll learn how to post and leave comments in Swedish about sharing music or videos. Amanda comments about a song she just heard at a party, posts a link to it, and leaves this comment.
Mirai: Kan inte sluta lyssna på Rihannas nya låt! Älska!
Dana: Meaning - "Can't stop listening to Rihanna's new song! Love!" Listen to a reading of the post and the comments that follow.

POST
Dana: Listen again to Amanda's post.
Mirai: Kan inte sluta lyssna på Rihanna's nya låt! Älska!
Dana: "Can't stop listening to Rihanna's new song! Love!"
Mirai: (SLOW) Kan inte sluta lyssna på Rihanna's nya låt! Älska! (Regular) Kan inte sluta lyssna på Rihanna's nya låt! Älska!
Dana: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Can't stop...."
Mirai: Kan inte sluta...
Dana: This is a common expression on social media. It just means that the person cannot stop doing something. For example, “I can't stop eating chocolate” or “I can't stop listening to this song.” Listen again, "can't stop..." is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Kan inte sluta... (REGULAR) Kan inte sluta...
Dana: Then comes the phrase - "Love!"
Mirai: Älska!
Dana: It’s used to express your love or strong like for something. It's very similar to Facebook's like button. Instead of a long sentence explaining that you like or love something on social media, you just write…
Mirai: Älska!
Dana: ...for short. Listen again. "Love!" is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Älska! (REGULAR) Älska!
Dana: All together, it's "Can't stop listening to Rihanna's new song! Love!"
Mirai: Kan inte sluta lyssna på Rihanna's nya låt! Älska!

Mirai: (SLOW) Åh, den är skitbra! (REGULAR) Åh, den är skitbra!
[Pause]
