Hey guys watching this video! when you start learning any a new language, you should focus on everything about this language that you want to learn, such as gramer, pronunciation, vocabulary, and then day by day you will improve this target language . Not just vocab, gramer or other thing, I mean ALTOGETHER ...💐

I asked you in the mountains To abandoned trees To the birds that have remained without a nest. They said your love is an angel I asked you about the roses To the nightingales waiting for spring To the very loving words. They said your love is an angel I asked you about the flowers To butterflies that fly in the field Every year with the seasons. They said your love is an angel I asked you about the past Today's days that pass without you To our fate. They said your love is an angel I asked you the ways To the years that I've missed you very much To our experiences abroad. They said your love is an angel I asked you about paradise To angels like the everlasting lights, To the untouched paradise girls. They said your love is an angel. I asked you about books in each line to pens. To poems that are full of kind words. They said to me your love is an angel. 💚💖💫💥💦

I’m going to do this with Spanish. I’ve been around the language most of my life but was embarrassed to speak because I was made fun of by others for not knowing something in said language whenever I decided to speak.. So 07/22/2021 - 01/22/2022 I should be fluent! Will come back to update. Wish me luck!

Not interested in asian languages myself. as i progressed in portuguese i realized the tongue is a muscle and must be exercised. so i got a speaker whose accent i liked and had her speak into a recorder from a book on a topic i was interested in. I .dont care to even understand what it is being said. what i am interested here is my accent . I then speak into the recorder the same paragraphs until my accent is like that persons. confidence is the key. My initial goal is to get to a 4 year olds level. they have their verb tenses down. emmerse youself in that culture and pay a tutor.

I spent 6 month In Russia with the native Russian in kursk. now I can speak like them. I absolutely know nothing about Russian language initially. Once I am able to speak Russian like native it such a weird feeling. I remember Im being arrested by Russian policeman and being interrogate very often, went to the local market to buy supplies. Rent their apartment watch their TV show listen to their radio. He is absolutely right. I curse and flirt in russian as well.

Greetings, A message from the Gospel in The Christian Holy Bible. This is the message of forgiveness of sin through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. In first Corinthians, chapter 15 verses 1 to 4, the apostle Paul states: “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I have preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; by which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you, first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures”. Romans chapter 3 verse 23, informs us, “For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God”. Ultimately it is a redeeming plan set by God, and for anybody who will faithfully trust in his Son will be saved. Romans chapter 6 verse 23, says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”. A sinner must recognise the despairing of her or his guilt before God in order for forgiveness to take effect. Every believer must understand in order to inherit the kingdom of God as sons of the king, the reality and foundational truth of sin must be acknowledged, for all who approach the throne of God for salvation. God promises us eternal life, for anybody who departs from sin through the saving faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus lived a perfect and sinless life which no person could live. Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross ultimately paid the debt we owe to God for our sin. Sin against an infinite God requires an infinite sacrifice; and Jesus died a substitutionary death for the sinner. In short, the works of Jesus paid the penalty of sin through an infinite sacrifice. Only the creator of life has the power to resurrect life after death and is essentially the proof of the power of God. Jesus Christ offers his salvation as a free gift and only be received by faith, despite any works or worthiness on our part. The scripture in Romans informs us, “If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved”. In conclusion, the resurrection of Christ is to bring everlasting life and salvation to anybody who follows him. The relationship between God and man can be restored through his saving faith.
