"…Unfortunately, I also love cinema movies, and I've been studying it for some time now, and I hope someday maybe I can put together those two passions and maybe write about movies in cinema. I don't know. Well, I hope you are all very well through this pandemic. Unfortunately, as I told you, I'm in Brazil and today we had the worst day in this pandemic, other biggest number of deaths. So it's not a good time to be a Brazilian nowadays.…"

"…So it's really crazy times, I think and I'm from Slovakia. So my major language is Slovakia. English is the language I'm using in work. So I think it is also on a quite good level on it. I used to learn German. I'm trying to still use it for some time, but it's not the same as English. So I will say just something in my language and then I can try maybe German for you. So this is Slovak Alexisi Valenza.…"

Moi! Terve! Greetings from Finland / España

"…So I'm going to tell you how to say Hi in Finnish in few ways. A very common way is to say Moi. That is like, high. Also, what we use is Terre terbe. That's a funny word, because it means, well finish. Some people say that it's the most difficult language in the world. They are probably right. I don't know. But anyway, they have two words, how to greet people in Finnish language, Moi.…"

"…So my native language is Russian. I also love English. I've been studying this language for all my life. I also studied French, but this language is difficult for me to understand the grammatical rules, but I adore the sound of French words. So in Russian language, we say Hello like this is informal version of world. Hello. Also, we have polite version. I know it's very hard to understand. Spell this word for English person who speaks English because of the sound.…"

"…This conversation just reminds me of a vacation trip I took to Sweden mosque, and when I got there, I realized English wouldn't be enough because although everybody there speaks good English, the restaurants around the hotel, they didn't have the menu in English, so I had to sit on a computer for like 2 hours to learn the most common food names in Swedish, which I learned to read. But it took me, like more than a week to realize I was pronouncing all the names wrong.…"

@potkukelkkacom Tschüss! Dia dhuit! Adiòs!

"…I had to look it up really quickly because I wanted to make sure I set it correctly. So diagnose essentially means God be with you. So I love how learning in other languages what Greetings or Hello means can often do with good health or God being with you. It's really interesting. So thank you for giving us a bit of a finished lesson, Moemoy, and also Adios.…"
