Eric: Alight Alex, let's break this down. First we have an expression meaning "Trying out."
Alex: Probando
Eric: This word in the gerund form is useful for short posts, because it doesn't have to be conjugated. It can also be used when talking about trying out new things, like electronic devices, cars, and so on. Listen again- "Trying out" is...
Alex: (SLOW) Probando (REGULAR) Probando
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "the new Italian restaurant."
Alex: el restaurante italiano nuevo.
Eric: In Spanish, most of the time, adjectives will follow the noun. Listen again- "the new Italian restaurant" is...
Alex: (SLOW) el restaurante italiano nuevo. (REGULAR) el restaurante italiano nuevo.
Eric: All together, "Trying out the new Italian restaurant."
Alex: Probando el restaurante italiano nuevo.

Alex: (SLOW) ¡Me hubieras llevado! (REGULAR) ¡Me hubieras llevado!

Alex: ¡Me hubieras llevado!
Eric: This expression can be used to show you’re feeling hurt, or sensitive.
Eric: Antonio’s college friend, Javier, uses an expression meaning - "Sounds expensive."
Alex: (SLOW) Se oye caro. (REGULAR) Se oye caro.
[Pause]
Alex: Se oye caro.
Eric: His neighbor, Angélica, uses an expression meaning - "Enjoy it a lot!"
