Eric: Hi everyone, I'm Eric.
Alex: And I'm Alex.
Eric: In this lesson, you'll learn how to post and leave comments in Spanish about being in a relationship. Antonio changes his status to "In a relationship", posts an image, and leaves this comment:
Alex: ¡Mi vida ya no será igual con alguien especial a mi lado!
Eric: Meaning - "My life won’t be the same with somebody special by my side!" Listen to a reading of the post and the comments that follow.

Javier: Milagro que alguien te va a aguantar.

POST
Eric: Listen again to Antonio's post.

Eric: "My life won’t be the same with somebody special by my side!"
Alex: (SLOW) ¡Mi vida ya no será igual con alguien especial a mi lado! (Regular) ¡Mi vida ya no será igual con alguien especial a mi lado!
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "My life won’t be the same."
Alex: Mi vida ya no será igual
Eric: This phrase is used a lot to express that something has happened that will impact you greatly. It could either be something with a negative or positive impact. Listen again- "My life won’t be the same" is...
Alex: (SLOW) Mi vida ya no será igual (REGULAR) Mi vida ya no será igual
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "with someone special by my side."
Alex: con alguien especial a mi lado
Eric: In Mexican culture, couples like to commemorate the day on which they began their relationship, and also to give each other presents when they celebrate each month's anniversary. Listen again- "with someone special by my side" is...
Alex: (SLOW) con alguien especial a mi lado (REGULAR) con alguien especial a mi lado
Eric: Altogether, "My life won’t be the same with somebody special by my side!"
Alex: ¡Mi vida ya no será igual con alguien especial a mi lado!
