Hello dear friends! Today I am recording a podcast on video! because When I posted my previous podcast it seemed to me that If you don’t see the person then, it’s a bit boring to listen … in the background, especially, when the language you are learning that is, an unfamiliar language for you it would be very helpful for you to see the person that is speaking to you to watch the their articulation … how the person is speaking to you with gestures in order to find out more about that person … to learn about his language about the expression with which he is speaking So today will be in such a video format but if you don’t feel like it you can at any moment put the video aside and just listen to me but in general and overall, there will be video. I want to talk to you I want you to be able to see me It will be so much easier for me so I will watch kinda like sound gets recorded I have sound is recorded separately on my wonderful voice recorder I hope that the quality will be good so, let’s begin Today, I would like to talk with you about how For a simple person, it’s important to listen to yourself listen not only to … your soul to its desires but also to listen to your body to it’s health because as a rule, our body should be in harmony with our soul and if suddenly We are dissatisfied with something either you are doing something under pressure that is, unwillingly something you don’t like it is often the human body it starts to protest You can get sick you can become emotionally exhausted and in the background you are ill with something you might start with headaches constantly You might very often come down with a cold or you could start to get stomachaches our whole system starts to fail in such a moment we need to, (during) without delay, stop ourselves and stay put and to understand the signal from our system from our body what is needed is to reconsider your life possibly to reconsider your priorities to put them completely differently It’s possible (that) we are just tired We pushed ourselves too far sometimes you just need to stop and create a plan to stop … There is so much information everywhere that is, a little from there a little from here There you did something, here something… and eventually you have nothing. You wasted all of your energy and haven’t received anything for it So, now I’m going to read some questions from one of my subscribers Mike Good asks What do you think about the cases? whether or not they are necessary learn to use them correctly or just to repeat phrases? Dear Mike , I consider that cases are necessary to know if you want to learn to write grammatically in Russian if you are going to work in Russia or simply want additional knowledge of Russian grammar but if you just need to speak in Russian it’s not absolutely necessary to learn cases gradually with… capacity of vocabulary you phrase pops into your head with which speak 90 percent of Russian people that is, if you need to ask where you need to go how to buy something or other how to order something, how to make a phone call to ask how to get somewhere yet again phone number, let’s suppose the … this is all very simple and banal it is very easy to learn All of these phrases for example in order to talk about something you can use whatever genre of literature or movie genre (theme) in which is told about that which you want to tell someone a gather for yourself as much as possible information on the topic you you want to talk about so that in your head already they are established phrases correct phrases with which (outcomes) you can function Well, what do I recommend that you do, if you want to learn cases? Take each case, for example and give it one week for studying it isn’t necessary to teach all the cases in a single day! that would be a huge mistake! Take one case understand the essence of that case which questions it answers and the most important thing is to find as many examples as can be found for each case examples of phrases sentences and try to learn them so that in various situations, the correct answer yet again you have already in your head so that it has already been remember (recorded) and worked out for you That is most important and gradually you learn another case through another week, and after two weeks learn another case one week later another case, i.e. in order to learn all of the cases you need 6 weeks since in Russian, there are 6 cases I don’t think it requires some kind of huge effort if you have such a goal and I think it is very easy it (your goal) to reach just completing successive actions should (be done) regularly As I constantly tell you Getting back to our topic… (Let’s return to our sheep: idiom) We return to our story I would like to tell you a story from my own life When I worked in an office in an ordinary job I didn’t like working there to put it mildly because This work sucked the strength out of me It sucked the energy out of me and (gave a substitute) Well, for me, only a certain amount of money and that’s it I got exhausted practically all of my energy resources and eventually my energy came to and end My system was telling me, “Enough!” When I further worked in order to get more money in order to like… join the team show my own value I struggled for any kind of work that helped what I was trying to to do… Everything! What I can with all my strength at that time I studied at an Institute so you can imagine how hard it is go to study then to work, come home from work to prepare for the next day of studies that is, to learn something and then wake up again early in the morning go to bed Late at night and simply give EVERYTHING x3 my energy It can be said that (got me) nowhere Of course, in the end, I just unfortunate fell outside when I was very tired, as usual, and tore a ligament in my knee joint Anyone who is familiar with medicine knows that after this, it’s very hard to walk practically impossible but so far this ligament does hadn’t healed I had to quit that job Then it seemed to me that it was just an awful thing that happened in my life but in fact my body, it made me make the right decision Now let’s read again a question from Mike How to practice verbs of motion well? any ideas? I would like to offer you Dear friends to learn the verbs of motion you need to love Russian songs for example, a song by Zhanna Friske Let’s go there together (me & you) where there is no snow or rain let’s go with you there (the two of us) we will just you and me that is, you can take any song stand up I’ll show you stand up and just start to dance and sing along this is the most important thing to be toned charged with energy and most importantly that, you repeat these phrases together with the singer (female or male) and to learn the correct pronunciation and plus all of this will be fun! let me show you song, Rina Allegrovoj you stole … stole, that is, I took, and just stole stolen cars stole a man hijacked hijacked themselves! and what is here criminal! I think you understood me take a song turn it on full blast print out the text for yourself these songs and just dance and sing More energy! More energy! More fun! So you will remember not just verbs of motion but and you learn a lot of cool phrases especially from songs about love so once again I’ll get back to my story then, after I lost my job I thought for a long time about what I would do what could make me happy my soul and I began to work in photography and ultimately, in the end, when I already entered for some level of when I started to shoot weddings when I had a lot of (appearing) people who wanted to have me photograph them I began to get not only just a thrill from this and it’s only now, from the people who are satisfied with my photos they like the way they look and, besides, it starts to get more for some sort of fee. The most important thing is that the pay financially it can not be compared in any way with… the toll of energy (with) the pleasure that you get from what are you doing from the fact that you understand that what you do is fun and you enjoy it very much so friends when you learn Russian, find that topic from which you get a buzz (fun) For example, if you are a photographer, You can find Russian video bloggers who tell about photography You can watch their video lessons to learn the Russian language from them because for you, this theme is interesting or for example, you like painting and you want to learn how to communicate with Russian artists to learn from their experience Find a video blogger / artist who tells the story of how he draws and repeat after him learn the phrases that he has said name there, like “brush” or I do not know there “paints” learn their that is, find your subject that you really like … and you get enjoyment from the study of a foreign language Do not force yourself this is probably the most stupid thing which can make a person in his own life this to do something with harm to/for myself for our energy for your mood for your life believe that studies can be exciting and awesome I think this video will inspire you I think that now it will be much easier for you to find something interesting for yourself In the Russian language and Make your learning cool/awesome interesting and useful for you and so friends thank you for being watching this video to the end Oh, I almost forgot, I wanted to brag to you … I have already talked about my painting I finally I tried oil paints and I drew this picture yesterday, this is it I really like it engaging in it (making) the video on Youtube So, friends Look for that which you like and go in that direction no matter what you’ll get a huge return Thank you all for your attention Have a great day everyone! Dear friends Goodbye to all of you, bye!
