POST
Eric: Listen again to Tom's post.
Clara: Es kann nur einen Sieger geben!
Eric: "There can only be one winner!"
Clara: (SLOW) Es kann nur einen Sieger geben! (Regular) Es kann nur einen Sieger geben!
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "there can only be one."
Clara: Es kann nur einen geben
Eric: On social media, it is common to use one sentence expressions to capture people's interest with as few words as possible. It is a common German expression often said in a joking way during tournaments or while watching sports or other competitions. Listen again- "there can only be one" is...
Clara: (SLOW) Es kann nur einen geben (REGULAR) Es kann nur einen geben
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "winner."
Clara: Sieger
Eric: This can refer to any kind of competition. Listen again- "winner" is...
Clara: (SLOW) Sieger (REGULAR) Sieger
Eric: All together, "There can only be one winner!"
Clara: Es kann nur einen Sieger geben!
