Challenge #4: Learn a Song in Your Target Language
This is a fun challenge that could take you anywhere from ten minutes to all day to complete depending on your level in your target language. The key to getting through this challenge without ripping your hair out is being honest with yourself about your proficiency level when you choose the song you want to learn.
If you’re a beginner, choose songs like Head Shoulders Knees and Toes or Frère Jacque.
If you’re closer to intermediate, choose theme songs for kids shows in your target language.
If you’re upper intermediate or advanced, choose a full song. It could be something that would play on the radio or a song from a musical in your target language. Make sure the songs have some complex grammar 🦑
If you’re not sure of your level, this challenge shouldn’t take you longer than an hour. If it does, you may have overestimated your abilities. Choose an easier song that pushes you just a little less so you don’t burn out and give up.
Anyways, for part one of this challenge you just have to learn how to sing the song and learn what you’re singing about.
For part two you have to write a story using the vocabulary you learned in the song.
Beginners write a 50 word story using at least 5 new words from your song.
Intermediate learners write a 100 word story using at least 10 new words from your song.
Advanced learners write a 200 word story using at least 15 new words from your song.
When doing this part, you should not be using a translator or dictionary. Only use the words from the song and words you know already.
Parallels in WINGS short film and idek what era to relate anymore
Okay so Bighit has absolutely zero chill because now they want to relate to danger era to wings, and I even saw a post saying it goes back to no more dream era rip army theorists but anyways lets begin.
Just as I mentioned in my previous post this third short film connects very well with the novel Demian by Herman Hesse, where Sinclair begins his rebellious behavior. And this film parallels that with the pairing of vmon.
Here is vmon of course doing graffiti in the RUN mv.
While taehyung is here before a mural of graffiti similar to the RUN mv setting but carving/scratching out the word “Abraxas”– the ancient God Sinclair is presented to after he begins his rebellious streaks. And whats pretty crazy is that when Sinclair is presented with the idea of Abraxas, that is when he begins to face his own thoughts of himself.. thoughts of self discovery.
Now here we have parallels within the actual films themselves, using the exact same eye. But in STIGMA we have what looks like to be a mother holding a child(?). So could this mean a sense of comfort for taehyung like how Eva was for Sinclair? Maybe.
Next you have the reference to Rap mon from the RUN mv japanese ver and I NEED U mv, but like the previous films he’s not there… Why is it that the films connect the pairings to the rap line but their actual presence isn’t shown? Jungkook with Yoongi, Jimin with Hoseok, and Taehyung with Namjoon? I think it’s because they (rap line) are possibly their (vocal line) mentors, as Demain was to Sinclair. Like idk if you guys remember my first post, but when Sinclair is in trouble he calls out for Demian… and in the beginning of prologue:
Tae is calling our for his hyung.. BUT HES NOT THERE.. JUST LIKE THE PHONE BOX IS EMPTY IN THE FILM. So then, could these scenes:
be the connection to Sinclair getting injured in war, and calling out for help as taes commits a crime and asking for a call at the end of the film? I’m getting goosebumps.
Now here I was mad because why would you bring back references to the danger era? But if you think about it, Taehyung cutting his hair could mean a lot of symbolic things. It could be the act of decision, taking forth the opportunity to say enough is enough. It could mean new beginnings. Starting fresh with a new self. It could mean disgrace, as some cultures believe that the length of hair represents strength, and if one were to commit a crime or was deemed unworthy the hair would be cut. So I was confused a bit, but when I watched the film again I noticed this:
Tae is wearing another nirvana shirt..
Specifically wearing the album called In Utero. omg omg omg this is where having a ex boyfriend that listened and taught me this comes in handy lol
In this special edition album there are 5 new songs. And one of them is called All Apologies..
You guys I could go on and on and make a separate post about this but i’ll cut it short.
Where the sun comes up about ten in the morning And the sun goes down about three in the day And you fill your cup with whatever bitter brew you’re drinking And you spend your life just thinkin’ of how to get away
Another great cover of “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive” to close out another great season of Justified, still one of the best shows on television.
In the deep dark hills of eastern Kentucky That’s the place where I trace my bloodline And it’s there I read on a hillside gravestone You will never leave Harlan alive
