Tom is serious while Jerry is a fun loving guy.
Tom and Jerry arrive at their hotel in Bangkok.
Tom: "Okay Jerry, we are in Thailand. Let's make the best of this trip."
Jerry: "I'm excited Tom! Have you seen how colorful everything is?"
Tom: "Yes, but we need to be careful to not get lost. This city is huge!"
Jerry: "Don't worry Tom, I have my map and my sense of adventure!"

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.
