Midjourney is a company that makes pictures using AI. They have a new version of their program, called 5.2. This version has a new feature that lets you zoom out on pictures. This means you can see more of the picture, like when you zoom out with a camera. The new version also has other improvements, like better picture quality and more variety in the pictures it makes. Some people really like the new version and think it is amazing. But, some artists are worried about how Midjourney makes its pictures, because they use many pictures from the internet without asking for permission.

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.

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.
