Remember my first Postcards from Sweden post where I warned you that the words might not be useful? Well these words today are very useful. Three little words, very powerful message. Can you guess what they mean?
Jag älskar dig
I'm going to teach you how to say “I love you.” I think that the more languages you can speak your love with, the better.
So let's handle pronunciation first:
dog – d + y= yog
el(k) + scar
Jag = I
älskar = love
dig = you
Pretty simple, yet a message we never get tired of hearing. Our family is very verbal. We tell each other “I love you!” multiple times of day. I don't think you can ever over-say it.
There are, however, other ways of showing our love than “just” saying it, and I wrote about it in the post called “What's Your Love Language?” If you're interested in better communicating how you feel to your loved ones, head over there. I describe the languages of: touch, acts of service, quality time, words of affirmation, and giving of gifts. I also give you the reference to the book I studied that taught me about this.
Ok klass, that will be all for today. You've learned THREE new words, so go tell some you älskar them! Dismissed.
