Jane: Hey Dave, have you ever seen the big cats of Africa in person?
Dave: No, I haven't. But I've always been fascinated by them. How about you?
Jane: Same here. I think they're such majestic creatures. Lions, cheetahs, leopards... they're all so beautiful.
Dave: Absolutely. It's amazing how each species has its own unique characteristics and behaviors.
Jane: Definitely. But it's also heartbreaking to see how their populations are declining due to habitat loss and poaching.
Dave: Yeah, it's our responsibility to ensure that future generations can also appreciate their beauty and importance in the ecosystem.
Jane: We need to do everything we can to raise awareness and support conservation efforts. It's not just about protecting the big cats themselves, but also preserving the balance of nature.
Dave: I couldn't agree more. We all have a role to play in making sure these magnificent animals thrive.

Here are some tips for getting the most out of this site.


Beginners: My strategy is to first read the translation while listening to the audio. Then I listen to each sentence individually. After that, I practice saying the vocabulary words out loud. Finally, I listen to the whole text again without reading the translation. I don't try to remember or understand everything. I just let the language sink in as I gain more exposure. (Videos about Comprehensible Input)


Intermediate Learners: To gain some speaking practice, try opening the translation in your native language and then translate it back into the language you're learning. If you encounter any difficulties, you can refer to the transcripts.


Although you may use these lessons for short, intense study sessions, it's important for intermediate learners to engage in extensive listening and reading with simple books, TV shows, and podcasts as soon as possible.
