    Grammar Extras #1 - "Ja, det er jeg", "Ja, det gjør jeg" - shortcut responses!

    Grammar Extras #1 - "Ja, det er jeg", "Ja, det gjør jeg" - shortcut responses!

    In this episode we're starting a new little series about small bits of helpful and useful expressions, that are common in everyday speech.

    And a very helpful way of not repeating the whole phrase in a reponse to a question, we often say f.ex. "Yes, I can" or "Yes, I do".

    Ex:
    Kan du sykle? Ja, det kan jeg.
    Vil du spise? Ja, det vil jeg.
    Sykler du til jobben? Ja det gjør jeg.

    The rule is this:
    kan, vil, skal, må + er/har in the question => repeat the verb in the response.
    All others verbs as question => put "gjør" in the response.

    Fill-ins:
    Er du glad i dag? Ja, det ... jeg.
    Kan du spille gitar? Ja, det ... jeg.
    Drikker du kaffe? Ja, det ... jeg.

    ..

    Great! Well done :))

    Basic Grammar #20 - Da/Når and past tense of helping verbs! ("De ville reise", "Hun kunne spille"). A2 Done!

    Basic Grammar #20 - Da/Når and past tense of helping verbs! ("De ville reise", "Hun kunne spille"). A2 Done!

    In the episode we'll go through the difference bewteen "da"/"når", both meaning "when", and then helping verbs in the past tense!

    In short for "when":
    "Da" is for "Once in the past"
    "Når" for everything else

    Ex:
    Da jeg var fire år.
    Når man studerer. 

    Hjelpeverb:
    kan - kunne
    vil - ville
    må - måtte
    skal - skulle
    bør - burde

    Examples:
    Hun kunne ikke komme fordi hun var syk.
    De skulle gå hjem før det ble mørkt.
    Ole burde spille mer musikk.

    Fill-ins:
    Da jeg var liten, ……... jeg ikke snakke italiensk. (kan)
    De ……... pakke kofferten kvelden før. (må)


    ..

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!! 🎉🎉🎉🎇🎇🎇🎊🌟🌟 :))

    A2 level of Grammar is finished!!
    Well done, and fantastic work!! Fantastisk jobbing!
    :DD

    Basic Grammar #19 - Prepositions about time, and "hos". "Om sommeren", "På tirsdag", "hos en venn"!

    Basic Grammar #19 - Prepositions about time, and "hos". "Om sommeren", "På tirsdag", "hos en venn"!

    In this episode we'll go through some very common (and consistent) expressions with time prepositions, and these are mostly just for remembering them :)

    Ex:
    Han er hos legen.
    Vi trener om kvelden.
    Vi skal sove ute i natt.
    Han spiller gitar på onsdag.
    Om høsten er det fine farger.

    ..

    Thanks for listening,
    and Great Work!! 😊
