POST
John: Listen again to Olav's post.
Mai: God mat med godt selskap!
John: "Good food in good company!"
Mai: (SLOW) God mat med godt selskap! (Regular) God mat med godt selskap!
John: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "good food."
Mai: God mat
John: This is a very basic phrase in Norwegian, and you can use it to express, in a brief and effective way, that the food is tasty on social media. Listen again- "good food" is...
Mai: (SLOW) God mat (REGULAR) God mat
John: Then comes the phrase - "with good company."
Mai: med godt selskap
John: This phrase is similar to the previous, using the adjective meaning "good" and a noun. Notice that the adjective changes to the neuter form, to agree with the noun gender. In general, you can use this expression to mean that you are with good friends. Listen again- "with good company" is...
Mai: (SLOW) med godt selskap (REGULAR) med godt selskap
John: All together, it's "Good food in good company!"
Mai: God mat med godt selskap!
