POST
Eric: Listen again to Maciek's post.
Marzena: Niedługo będzie nas troje.
Eric: "Soon there will be three of us."
Marzena: (SLOW) Niedługo będzie nas troje. (Regular) Niedługo będzie nas troje.
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "soon."
Marzena: niedługo
Eric: This adverb actually means "not long,” but we write it as one word. You can use it when talking about things that will happen soon and it usually comes at the beginning of the sentence. Listen again- "soon" is...
Marzena: (SLOW) niedługo (REGULAR) niedługo
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "there will be three of us."
Marzena: będzie nas troje
Eric: This phrase is in the future tense. It signifies a change that will happen. Listen again- "there will be three of us" is...
Marzena: (SLOW) będzie nas troje (REGULAR) będzie nas troje
Eric: All together, "Soon there will be three of us."
Marzena: Niedługo będzie nas troje.
