POST
Dana: Listen again to Amanda's post.
Mirai: Åh, så trött att jag tror jag avlider!
Dana: "Oh, I'm so tired, I think I'll die!"
Mirai: (SLOW) Åh, så trött att jag tror jag avlider! (Regular) Åh, så trött att jag tror jag avlider!
Dana: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "so tired."
Mirai: Så trött
Dana: In English, we use the word "so" to make it clear how strongly we feel about something. For example, “I'm so tired!”
Mirai: In Swedish, we use "så" in the same way. For example, Jag är så hungrig!
Dana: “I'm so hungry!”
Mirai: Jag fryser så mycket!
Dana: “I'm so cold!” Listen to the expression again. "So tired" is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Så trött (REGULAR) Så trött
Dana: Then comes the phrase "that I think I'll die."
Mirai: att jag tror att jag avlider.
Dana: We often use this expression to mean “I think I'll die.” A common expression is…
Mirai: Jag fryser så mycket att jag tror att jag avlider.
Dana: “I'm so cold I think I'm going to die.”
Mirai: We also use att jag tror att jag dör to mean the exact same thing. For example, Jag är så trött att jag tror att jag dör!
Dana: “I'm so tired, I think I'll die!” Listen to the expression again. "That I think I'll die" is...
Mirai: (SLOW) att jag tror att jag avlider. (REGULAR) att jag tror att jag avlider.
Dana: All together, it's "Oh, I'm so tired, I think I'll die!"
Mirai: Åh, så trött att jag tror jag avlider!
