I'M COMING: meaning and examples

Good morning.

How would you translate the following dialogue?

Example 1 (Spanish):
Matthew: David. Necesito que me ayudes con los platos.
David: ¡Voy!

In spoken English in this context, the Spanish word "voy" is translated as I'm coming. So, the dialogue would be translated in the following way.

Example 1 (English):
Matthew: David. I need you to help me with the dishes.
David: I'm coming!

David's answer indicates that he is on his way (see yesterday's Daily Vitamin).

Example 2:
Nancy: Honey...where are you?
Ana: I'm coming mum. I'll be there in fifteen seconds.

Tomorrow we will look at a related expression. If you have any questions about today's Daily Vitamin, please post them in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website (

Enjoy the rest of your day.
