POST

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...

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!
