POST
Becky: Listen again to Juha 's post.
Nico: Lämmin suositus! Tästä ravintolasta saa mahtavaa sushia.
Becky: "A warm recommendation! You can get awesome sushi from this restaurant."
Nico: (SLOW) Lämmin suositus! Tästä ravintolasta saa mahtavaa sushia. (Regular) Lämmin suositus! Tästä ravintolasta saa mahtavaa sushia.
Becky: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "A warm recommendation!"
Nico: Lämmin suositus!
Becky: The first word means "warm," and the second word means "recommendation." You can use this expression whenever you want to recommend something or someone in a warm-hearted, empathetic way. Listen again - "A warm recommendation!" is...
Nico: (SLOW) Lämmin suositus! (REGULAR) Lämmin suositus!
Becky: Then comes the phrase - "You can get awesome sushi from this restaurant.."
Nico: Tästä ravintolasta saa mahtavaa sushia.
Becky: You can use the expression meaning "You can get awesome...from this..." to say you can find or buy something great from a shop or a restaurant. Sushi is quite trendy and popular in Finland, but as it isn’t a Finnish dish, not everyone has tried it yet. Also, usually only the bigger cities in Finland have sushi restaurants. Listen again - "You can get awesome sushi from this restaurant" is...
Nico: (SLOW) Tästä ravintolasta saa mahtavaa sushia. (REGULAR) Tästä ravintolasta saa mahtavaa sushia.
Becky: Altogether, "A warm recommendation! You can get awesome sushi from this restaurant."
Nico: Lämmin suositus! Tästä ravintolasta saa mahtavaa sushia.

Hello CONCEICAO MARTINS,


Thank you for your comment.

Yes, maybe this sentence has been said a tad too fast but there is the "i" letter as well. great thing is that you can practise this "suositus" word better on the vocabulary section. Happy studying!


Let us know if you have any question.

Cheers,

Aarni
