Chinese III

Happy Saturday everyone! In the third installment of Chinese, we will finish up our Chinese vowels (looking at “O” and U”) and will also cover consonant sounds in Chinese. There aren’t many consonant rules as most sounds are spelled how they would sound in normal English. Enjoy!

If you’re learning from, watching, and enjoying these videos, then I please request you to help me with my water fundraiser. ANY donation is absolutely welcome and so very appreciated. Please click here to donate.

Thank you!

Sanskrit/Hindi III

Hi everyone, hope everyone has had a restful weekend! This week we will take a look at the consonant sounds and spellings of Hindi and Sanskrit. These are fairly simple, but it is important to keep that sneaky “h” in mind! There are a lot of consonant blends, such as “bh” or “dh” that pop up in words from Hindi or Sanskrit. Enjoy!

I have started a new fundraiser with water.org! I have created my own fundraiser for Water.org because I believe we can help solve this challenge. I hope you agree. Please give whatever amount you can to support my efforts. For every $25 that I raise, Water.org can give someone access to safe water for life. Together, we can change lives.

Thank you!

Japanese III

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is doing well. This week, we will continue forward by looking at consonants in Japanese – while the consonant spellings are fairly unique to the language, they are really simple and consistent, to our advantage. Enjoy!

Also, if you would please like to donate to my fundraiser to help provide clean and fresh water to needy families all over the globe, please click here. I would really appreciate it!

Greek IV

Hi everyone! I hope everyone’s summer has kicked off to a great start! Now that we are done with Greek vowels, we can move on to Greek consonants starting with this video. Greek has some unique consonant spellings, which can be seen in the many Greek roots out there. Spelling bees usually love to test how well you know these Greek consonant spellings, and the roots come in very handy for just that.

Also, please do not forget to donate to water.org. There are 20 days left to reach our goal, and with the hot summer approaching, we know the importance of water at this time. Please help here.

Italian III

Hello! Hope everyone had a good week. This week’s video covers some of the consonant sounds in Italian. Some of these consonant spellings are solely unique to Italian, so it is important to remember how they work.

Also, I am excited to share that my blog has received 4500+ views with 400+ visitors recently. WOW! I realize that a part of my goal is being achieved; I believe my videos are reaching a wider audience and that you all are learning from them. However, the other goal of this blog is to help make a difference on the other side of the world through my fundraiser at water.org. This aspect of my goal is facing a challenge as March 15th is approaching fast. I have put in an enormous effort to bring these videos to you, and will continue to do so. I would sincerely appreciate it if all my viewers could contribute a little for the fundraiser to help fulfill my goal by donating at this link: http://give.water.org/fundraiser/1507/.
