Mi experiencia de el curso de español en EE. UU..

¡Hola, encantado de conocerlos a todos! Quiero combatirles mi experiencia en el primer día de estar en curso de español. Me lo inscribí cuando me intercambie de una universidad de Taiwán la de EE. UU.. Por lo tanto no había nadie a conmigo en este momento, porque no yo había conocido a persona y por eso me sentí un poco nervioso ir a la clase al principio. Por suerte todo fue bien. Desde ml punto de vista, el ambiente de la clase fue muy relajante. Podías decir lo que justo pensaste. Lo que más me gustó fue la manera de enseñar de la profesora. Ella siempre nos daba un tema por cada clase para comunicarnos y practicar en español. A veces combatió algunas canciones interesantes para que pudiéramos saber más de la cultura española. Ahora aún lo recuerdo porque me dejó interesarme en la cultura diversa y divertida. Para resumir, ¡me encantó mucho!

l eat out a friend

The other day, I went to eat burned beef. It is called"Yakiniku"in Japan. I hadn't ate out under the influence of COVID‑19, but I have gone to invite a friend in a while. The first, he is one of my friends who had became friends in a video game of online,but now we meet on offline. Does your country's people already go to travel, eat out regardless COVID‑19? Some people keep self-restraint yet, but I think that will be careful go out.

Être fameux

Je pense que je ne veux pas être fameux. Serai un peu fameux est bien pour moi pourquoi je veux producer ma musique et l'écrit ma poesie. Mais je n'aime pas les vies des les personnes publiques. Ils n'ont pas la vie privée. Lorsque ils demandent pour est ild font l'objet des critiques. Mais, avoir une groupe des personnes qui aiment ton musique et poesie est belle. Ils comprennent tous crois, amours, intérêts, motifs etc. Dans l'unité c'est une achevé groupe des personnes qui partage les mêmes idéaux !

LE BÉNÉVOLAT

Faire du bénévolat, c’est donner de son temps gratuitement pour défendre une cause ou pour aider d’autres personnes, normalement au sein de d’une institution sans but lucratif (c’est-à-dire, une association d’aide humanitaire, une ONG ou une structure publique). Cette activité présente des inconvénients ainsi que des avantages : nous allons nous demander, donc, si elle est positive pour notre société ou non, en parlant de leurs avantages et inconvénients. D’une part, le fait de s’engager volontairement sert à donner un sens à nos vies : de nombreuses études témoignent de cette réalité, en montrant que le bénévolat combat la dépression et augmente la confiance en soi. C’est pour cela que plusieurs psychologues conseillent à leurs patients de l’essayer ou de faire quelque chose qui se rapproche à leurs goûts et préférences. Ainsi, lorsque nous faisons du bénévolat, nous finissons par rencontrer d’autres personnes et en conséquence par élargir nos réseaux de contacts : c’est alors une bonne manière de combattre l’isolement et la solitude. Il faut aussi souligner qu’aider aux autres sert à améliorer le CV et les opportunités de travail, parce que nous mettons en lumière que nous sommes altruistes, gentils et conscients de la réalité qui nous entoure. D’autre part, certaines personnes considèrent que faire du bénévolat, c’est une forme d’esclavage moderne. Selon eux, ses principaux inconvénients sont l’absence de rémunération et la perte du temps libre (qui pourrait peut-être être consacré à d’autres activités, telles que la recherche d’un poste rémunéré). Il y a même des gens qui soutiennent que le fait de dédier de son temps aux tâches non rémunérées diminue la confiance que nous avons en nous. Ceux qui sont contre le bénévolat mentionnent aussi que, pour améliorer nos CV, ça vaut mieux d’apprendre des langues ou d’acquérir d’autres compétences ou habilités. Personnellement, je trouve que le bénévolat est quelque chose vraiment positif et je vous conseille de le donner une opportunité. Je l’ai déjà essayé : lorsque j’étais lycéenne, je le faisais à la banque alimentaire de ma ville. Par exemple, je participais à des collectes de denrées alimentaires en magasin ou je contribuais à l’organisation, la gestion et la répartition des ressources. Cela me faisait beaucoup plaisir et je ne garde que des bons souvenirs !

Yesterday, a person added me on Skype. Although I didn't know who he or she was, I accepted the request. There were no profile photos, and his or her name was just a string of characters. I didn't say hello to him or her after accepting his or her friend's application. This afternoon, she greeted me. She said her name was Blay, a hairdresser in the US. She was in a mixed race. Her mom was from Dallas and daddy was from Ghana. She also told me that she was in Africa right now and her daddy just passed away a few months ago. She was the only child in her family. She couldn’t inherit her daddy's gold mine, because according to African tradition, only male or married women can inherit their parents' property. She said she was still a spinster. To inherit her dad's gold mine, she had to find a man to marry. She said my profile left her a good impression, so she asked me to see if I could help her, and promised that she would give me 40 percent of the property. I said I couldn't help her because I was a married older man. Even after that, she still insisted I could do that, and all I should do was to talk to her lawyer and give them my name. I strongly rejected her, and I said even if I could help her, I wouldn't take a cent from her because I was not a greedy person. She knew that she couldn't cheat me, so she just said thank you. I also said best wishes to her. During my whole English learning journey, I have met many different types of scammers, but they never succeeded because I could spot them at the very beginning.

Revised call 1

Could you please help by correcting anything that's wrong or unnatural in my sentences? You can change the order of the sentences, do whatever you want! I'd like to learn some common phrases and slang! 🙇‍♂️ Also, I'd like to get your advice on talking to foreign people I look forward to your constructive comments.✍️ By the way, "A" is me and "B" is a foreigner. A: Hello? B: Hi! A: Are you Simon? B: Yeah! A: Oh, nice to meet you, I'm Sho. B: Nice to meet you too! A: Is it okay if I call you Simon? Do you want me to call you "Sai" or "Mon" or something like that? haha B: Please call me as you like. haha A: In Russia, is there a word that you use to politely call someone by their name, like "‾san" in Japan, when you first talk someone? B: Yes, there is. We use the name of the person's father. For example, if President Putin's name is "Владимир" and his father's name is "Владимирович", we call him "Владимир Владимирович". A: So do I have to know the father's name in order to call a Russian person by their honorific title like "◯◯-san"? B: Yes. So, if the person you are addressing is a superior, you must remember their name and father's name when you meet them for the first time and ask for their father's name if they don't give you their business card. A: I see, I've learned something new. Thank you! haha
B: But you don't have to use it now because it is used in business situations or when you need to be polite. A: Got it! I'll call you Simon then. B: Yes! A: By the way, do you want me to correct all your Japanese on this call? do you just want someone to understand what you mean even if your Japanese is wrong? B: Uh, I want you to correct everything. A: Gotcha! So, as we talk naturally, if your Japanese is wrong, I can correct it each time? B: Yes. A: Also, do you want me to correct your Japanese in a polite way or in a natural, casual way? B: Casual, please! A: OK. B: And would you like to practise intonation? Or would you like to leave intonation for now? B: It is very difficult to overcome intonation, so if my Japanese is correct first, it will be fine for now. A: Got it! B: What about you? A: I don't speak Russian at all, so I'd like to hear about Russia in English or Japnese and hear about things from a Russian point of view. B: Okay. A: By the way, have you ever used this app to make a phone call? B: Yes. A: Oh, I just got this app, so it's my first time making a phone call. B: Oh, really? A: Yeah, plus when I think about it, this is the first time in my life that I'm talking to a Russian person. You are the first Russian I've ever talked to. B: Oh, really!? A: Yeah, What’s so surprising? lol Do you get many chances to talk to foreigners? Have you ever met and talked with Japanese people? B: Yeah, I have. There was a Japanese student at my university, so I have. A: Oh, I see. There were not many European students at my university. There were none in my department. B: Which countries were most of them from? A: Asian. Korean, Chinese, Myanmar, and so on. B: I see. A: There are people in Japan who look Russian, but I don't know if they are really Russian, so maybe I haven't even seen them. I don't know how to distinguish between people from countries surrounding Russia. Can you tell the difference between a Japanese and a Chinese and a Korean? B: It's difficult, but surprisingly I can tell. lol A: No way. haha Even I sometimes make mistakes. haha Have you ever talked to someone who you thought was Russian, but turned out to be from a different country? B: Well, it just so happens that they were Ukrainians. haha A: I see, there are people who were born in Russia but grew up in Ukraine, and vice versa, right? B: Yes. A: Hmm, Russian... I wonder who are the famous Russians in Japan? Hmmm I wonder the Russians I know... B: You know President Puchin? A: Oh, yeah! He's famous. Especially now that he is in the news every day. lol Oh, yeah! Gorbachev is famous too. Also Stalin. Political people are famous. And Gagarin. Not politics though. lol B: I see. A: Oh! There he is! I just remembered! A famous Russian in Japan! It's Hyodor! B: Oh, really? A: Sure! If you were to ask Japanese, "who is the strongest in human race?" they will all say "Hyodor. Maybe. haha B: I think it's different now. haha A: Oh, and Alexander Karelin is famous too in Japan. If you ask the Japanese, "who is the strongest of the primates?" they will all say Karelin. Perhaps. haha Anyways, who is the most famous Japanese in Russia? B: Well... I don't know who is the most famous, but I guess Hayao Miyazaki is famous. A: Oh, Ghibli! Have you seen them too? B: Yes! A: What do you like best? B: Well, I wonder what number one would be... It depends on my mood. But the one that just popped into my head is "Porco Rosso"! A: Oh, really? haha That's rare. You're Rare Pokemon. haha B: Whyyy? haha "Marco" is so cool, isn't he? Do you dislike "Porco Rosso"? A: No, I don't dislike it at all! But I haven't heard too many people say it first on their list of favorites. I guess most of them are around Spirited Away, Totoro, Princess Mononoke. B: Yeah, right. haha It's the same in Russia. "Spirited Away" and "Howl" and so on are popular. A: Oh, all countries are the same, right? Except for Simon. haha B: Yeah, looks that way. haha A: AnywaysI like Spirited Away! How about "Spirited Away"? Simon points, out of 10. B: Well, 7 points. lol A: Why so low! haha B: Well, it's not bad, but it doesn't make me wanna watch it again. A: Really!? I've probably seen it 50 times or more. haha So I must be an oddball for Simon.  B: Yeah, you are. haha A: But from my point of view, you are an oddball. haha Anyways, what do you think of Japanese anime in Russia? B: There are people who watch it. But I don't watch much. A: Uh-huh. B: I used to watch them when I was a kid, but not anymore. A: I see. What are the popular anime in Russia? B: Recently, I guess "Demon Slayer" and things like that. A: Ah ha, I knew it, cuz all countries are the same. haha What about Japanese movies? B: Well, I think more people watch TV dramas than Japanese movies. A: Do you watch them? B: I don't watch so many Japanese movies myself. haha But I have seen the old ones. What was the name of that.... oh, "Departures"? A: Oh, "Departures", how was it? B: Hmm, yeah, it was good. Oh, and I recently saw Drive My Car. A: Oh, the one that won some kind of Academy Award? B: Yes! A: How was it? B: Better than I thought. A: Oh, I see, but I realized again winning an Academy Award has a great effect, because it prodded even Simon to watch a Japanese movie. haha B: Yeah, exactly. haha I guess when movies win awards, other countries wanna import them. Other Japanese films don't get imported very often. A: Oh, I see. I think it's true because Most Japanese films these days are made for the domestic market, so maybe people overseas don't want to watch them. By the way, do you usually watch movies on streaming services? B: Well, you can watch them for free. A: Hey! haha You can't do that! That's illegal! B: I'm sorry. haha A: Oh I see, now I know. In Japan, video rental shops are disappearing. I thought it was because of streaming services, but it's because of you! haha B: Yeah, it's possible. haha

La ráfaga

Ayer mientras estaba en la aula, una ráfaga insólita irrumpió por la ventana y comenzó a desorganizar las pilas de papeles que estaban sobre mi escritorio. Durante los momentos iniciales pensé que iba a ser pasajero y que pronto aflojaría. Al contrario, no se detuvo y soplaba con fuerza cada vez más. Noté que incluso había empezado a arrastrar las sillas arrimadas a los pupitres un poco. Al darme cuenta de que la situación se había puesto un poco caótico, salté de mi silla para calmarla de inmediato. Me arremetí a la ventana que había sido abierta de par en par y la cerré de golpe. La calma regresó en cuanto que el viento dejó de soplar dentro de la aula. Además los papeles dejaron de flotar y se cayeron sobre el suelo. Fui recogiéndolos hasta que un compañero se asomó la cabeza por la puerta y me preguntó si quería que me ayudara. Lo agradecí por ofrecer y le contesté que ya me había encargado de reorganizar todo. Encima ya casi había terminado la tarea.

finding out about the history of the house or building

In some countries, more people are becoming interested in finding out about the history of the house or building they live in. What are the reasons for this? How can people research this question? In the present society, a myriad of people from some nations is curious about the origin of their houses or building. The curiosity about Interesting stories about the past and the concern about the places can be two rational and primary for this. In this essay, two reasons and the way to learn about this would be discussed. The first reason worth mentioning is that we live in a modern-day, where a range of intriguing stories about the past exists, which leads to the attraction of knowledge about the past. The gone-by invention and achievement were hyped in media and through word of mouth. That leads to the eagerness to find the own origin of the home. The second reason is the insecurity of people about the place they live. When people do not grasp firm knowledge about their home, they sometimes feel confused about what happened in the past in their home. When they are clear about what has gone on in their place, they feel more secure and safe. In this modern-day, the biggest source for finding information is the internet. First of all, surfing the internet is the first and necessary step to approach knowledge. However, not all information about local homes and buildings is not available and save on the internet. In this situation, asking local people or relatives is the optimal choice. People, who live in the same area, can have some knowledge about their neighborhood. In the light of the above analysis, curiosity and seeking the feeling of security could be two of the reasons for finding out about the origin of the place people live. To do this, searching on the internet and asking the local people could be the way.
