TAP FOR SOUND! "Ma chérie" means my darling
Ma chérie can only be uttered by a man because it's a French term of endearment used for a woman.

When my husband came to the U.S. 17 years ago, he didn't know any english. (He *should* have known at least a little because he was taught it in school, but he was a bit rebellious, school wasn't exactly his thing and he didn't think he'd EVER have a reason to use it. Talk about your all-time backfire! 😂) He did pack a couple serbian-english dictionaries (the blue one & thicker dark brown one shown here) though, but he rarely used them. He learned english mostly by watching movies. When we met, I bought a book/CD system (bottom of the pile) and the light blue one with red lettering. Do you know how hard it was to find these?? Serbian-English dictionaries don't exactly exist at Barnes & Noble. 😂 After 14 years together, these little books pretty much just collect dust because the best way to learn any language has always been to just be immersed in it, surrounded by it, for a good, long chunk of time. (I do refer to the blue one often though because it's easy to navigate and uses more everyday slang as opposed to just formal ways of speaking; I'll likely pack this for for our trip.) He still makes funny mistakes when speaking english, but the mister can definitely proclaim that he's now fluent in two languages. I speak & understand serbian pretty well (and can read both of its alphabets) but have a hard time calling myself fluent. Our son's knowledge grows a little more with each annual month-long trip, but loses that growth so fast when we come home. At the end of this YEAR-long trip, the kiddo and I will finally be fluent. It's the biggest reason we've always wanted to do this - for our son. But what a gift it will *also* be to the man that takes such good care of us and works ridiculously hard to give us the little, but nice life that we have. PS - Do you spy the one book here that isn't like the others? Get it. So f*cking funny. 😂📚💕

My first trip to another country without my parents happened in 2013. My sis and I were volunteers in Turkish international camps. The first one was very fun and easy. It was all about speaking English. We had to talk with Turkish kids, play games with them and film short movies. It was super duper fun. The second camp was way harder.
We had to work 6-8 hours a day under the sun. The project was about renovating an old school. So painting the walls, planting trees and flowers with the weather +40 was a real challenge!
But I loved it. The summer of 2013 has literally changed my life. I am very thankful to my parents for being so open-minded and trusting.
Would you send your kid to another country for an exchange year or maybe to be a volunteer?
😄😍🌇 Так хочется настрочить огромный пост, но количество знаков не позволит. Поэтому буду говорить только по делу😄😍
В 2013 году началась вообще вся история с моими путешествиями. Перед тем, как отправить меня в США родители решили устроить небольшой тест.
Я и моя систр Настя отправились в Турцию в волонтерские лагеря.
В первом лагере нужно было просто учить детей английскому при помощи игр и творчества. Это было очень весело и интересно! А вот во втором проекте надо было сажать деревья, красить стены, укладывать дорожки... И все это!! В сорокоградусную жару! Да по 6-8 часов😁😅 Представляете? Но все равно было очень здорово! Такие лагеря- отличная возможность выучить язык и завести друзей(или любовь😂😉) из других стран.
Давайте пробежимся по основным пунктикам. Если будет интересно- я могу еще написать пост на эту тему. Дайте знать в комментариях.

1️⃣ Еда. Очень жирная и совсем не полезная. Бургеры, белый рис, хлеб, мясо и сосиски. Внимание веганам и вегетарианцам! Берите с собой гречку или хлебцы какие-нибудь. Очень часто волонтерские проекты находятся... ну в самой ненаселенной части страны😂 Конечно, там будет один ларек. Но в нем можно будет купить печеньки и шоколадки.😂😅 А в Турции девушкам нельзя ходить в одиночку, поэтому.. Придется постоянно всех просить с вами сгонять в магазин :)
2️⃣ Возраст. Есть программы, на которые берут целыми семьями, есть по возрасту от 12-99. Есть все, главное- хорошо ищите

I have a life goal of learning 6 foreign languages by age 50 (besides my primary language of English). I have had this goal for several years. I have studied 9 languages over the years, but only know English fluently. Today I decided it's time to get moving toward that goal. These are the 3 languages I'm currently, and swiftly studying now. #language #speech #languages #linguistics #russian #spanish #german #germany #mexico #russia #nerd #genius #potential #translate

Como lo comentaron un par de seguidoras, USAR implica hacer servir algo para un fin específico (cual instrumento), mientras que UTILIZAR se inclina más hacia aprovechar o sacar provecho. ¿Quién se anima a dar más ejemplos de esta diferencia? #CamiTips #español #Spanish #Venezuela #Colombia #España #México #Chile #Argentina #Perú #Ecuador #Panamá #Miami #NewYork #Latinoamérica #LatinAmerica #consulting #languages #idiomas

🔹If you have never had access to education; you simply can't know the power that it can have on your life. 🔹Once you have been exposed, even to the slightest touch of it (education, that is), your life can't ever be the same again. ✨How so? you ask.✨ 🔹Well, your ideas become challenged. 🔹Your worldview changes. 🔹You become more aware of the many complexities around you. 🔹Instead of allowing the complexities to defeat you, you become more prepared in facing them. ✨Always say yes to education. Always. ✨
