POST
Dana: Listen again to Amanda's post.
Mirai: Tappade luren i golvet. Vet någon vart jag kan laga en Iphone skärm billigt?
Dana: "Dropped my phone on the floor. Does anyone know where I can fix an iPhone screen cheaply?"
Mirai: (SLOW) Tappade luren i golvet. Vet någon vart jag kan laga en Iphone skärm billigt? (Regular) Tappade luren i golvet. Vet någon vart jag kan laga en Iphone skärm billigt?
Dana: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "dropped my phone on the floor."
Mirai: Tappade luren i golvet.
Dana: In this phrase...
Mirai: "lur"
Dana: … is slang for “phone” and is commonly used in Sweden. Unfortunately, people drop their phones a lot, so you may hear this often...
Mirai: Tappade
Dana: “dropped”
Mirai: luren or telefonen
Dana: “the phone”
Mirai: i golvet
Dana: “on the floor.” Listen again. "Dropped my phone on the floor" is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Tappade luren i golvet. (REGULAR) Tappade luren i golvet.
Dana: Then comes the sentence "Does anyone know where I can fix an iPhone screen cheaply?"
Mirai: Vet någon vart jag kan laga en Iphone skärm billigt?
Dana: The first two words...
Mirai: "Vet någon"
Dana: ...is a good start for asking a question, it means "does anyone know."
Mirai: Laga in this sentence means "to fix" or "to repair," but in other contexts it can also mean “to cook.” Listen to the expression again."Does anyone know where I can fix an iPhone screen cheaply?" is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Vet någon vart jag kan laga en Iphone skärm billigt? (REGULAR) Vet någon vart jag kan laga en Iphone skärm billigt?
Dana: All together, it's "Dropped my phone on the floor. Does anyone know where I can fix an iPhone screen cheaply?"
Mirai: Tappade luren i golvet. Vet någon vart jag kan laga en Iphone skärm billigt?
