  • "I've seen you here before, but I guess I just never had the courage to say hello before."
  • "I'm so excited to finally meet you in person! I've always dreamed of this."
  • "Sorry, but, um... am I the only one confused here? Why hasn't anyone else showed up?"
  • "Watch out!"
  • "Am I dead? Are you an angel?"
  • "Okay, okay, listen. I miiiiight have had a little too much, and I miiight need someone to help me get home. You look trustworthy, so let's go."

  • "Stay still! I'm trying to stop the bleeding!"
  • "I'm not trying to be nosy or anything, but... I've been seeing you here a lot lately, always by yourself. I just wanted to say, if you have anything on your mind, I'd listen."

collivers  asked:

hi! I've been learning Spanish for about a year and a half now and I'm loving it. I've been feeling more confident about my reading and writing lately but whenever I actually have to speak Spanish (especially in front of natives) i get really nervous and mess up. I've got an oral exam coming up and I'm worried I'll just freeze. do you have any tips on how to feel more comfortable speaking languages? thank you!

Yes it is quite a challenge! My tips would be
• Quit thinking about “did I say this right?” “Can I find the exact word to translate that” because that can make you feel nervous and increase insecurities
• If a word doesn’t work, think of another one, don’t waste time trying to get everything perfect
• Listen carefully to everyone and be all ears, if you didn’t understand something, ask them if they can elaborate
• Look for natural sounding words that you can use when speaking informally
• Make a list of themes you can talk about, things you like etc. and try to actually write the scenario of a conversation in your language then translate it, you’ll see you will find new idioms, sayings and ways to speak that are very useful!
• Watch movies, shows, listen to podcasts, etc. See how conversations flow naturally
• In oral exams I actually just make everything up, if I stick to my real and actual life it would be difficult to translate it or maybe I take too much time trying to remember things so if for example they ask me about a cultural activity in my hometown I’ll just make up some festivity about how my town celebrates having the best pumpkins of the west world lmao
• Feel free, and most of all, enjoy it!

  • 9: Many people have heard this song, at first when I listened to it I didn't notice anything suggestive about the lyrics, but (it was only) after I searched it up that I came to know. Jonghyun: Which song is it?
  • 9: It's about making love..
  • Jonghyun: Oh make love, the melody is pretty nice.
  • 9: The lyrics include something about taking off clothes.
  • Jonghyun: Moms will speak up about it when hearing such songs. What other song lyrics are there?
  • 9: Do I have to talk about this?
  • Jonghyun: This song is good, let's analyse it.
  • 9: .... (it's about) take off your clothes and throw it away. Jonghyun: Oh, moms would hate (songs like) this
  • 9: This song is the most suggestive one among the 5 songs that I've prepared. I even got embarrased listening to it. There are a lot of suggestive songs by Jackson, (there are also) many sexy ones.
  • Jonghyun: Artistes say that there are nothing nice about the lyrics of this song.
  • Listener: Does Blue Night play such songs now?
  • Jonghyun: We're adults. Adults.
