Well, for not preparing a lesson, I think you need to be disciplined... ;-)

But - it was interesting to hear a couple of minutes of Slovenian, so I guess you're forgiven!

So discipline me, please! :))))

Phew! It was quite an effort, right? LOL

How EXACTLY would you discipline him? LOL
I'm afraid I have some vague ideas...I'm afraid to let them take shape, I'm too female for this purpose! ;)

Hi, Teach, always glad to see you on video! And at last I know how exactly to pronounce your name! :)

It was especially interesting for me to hear a few sentences in your language, being Slavonic myself. Ugh, very very different from Bulgarian - vocabulary included. A little closer to Russian. Reminds me a little of every Slavonic language I've ever heard in films in my younger years - Serbian, Check...wait, what did Polish sound like, I seem to have forgotten. Slovene definitely sounds like a difficult language to learn, even for me.

Yes, I have to agree with you on that one. Slovene is pretty specific; I think that Czech could be the most similar to it, but only from a distance. And judging by some people who are trying to learn it, yes, it's tough.

Oh, and I did a slow, decent, almost "radio" version of Slovene. Spoken language is faster, way faster.

Interesting reaction - my first reaction was to be surprised how little it sounded (to me) like Russian. I'm out practice with Russian, to be sure, but I wasn't picking out some words like I could with some other languages in the area.

Well.... if only. Would give me a greater chance of escaping. LOL

I guess I was just too lazy to put my cam on a stand or on a tripod, so all that shaking in-hand recording was hidden underneath all that circling. LOL

But I AM 38. :) So I guess adorable can happen at that frightening age as well. LOL And I can present some ID, don't you worry. :)

... well ... I think that the rolling around has maybe just a little, hidden and subliminal, in anyway not noticeable narcissistic aspirations ... doesn’t it?

the look of this video is awesome!!! which really helps when you watch it over and over. traditional language lessons could learn a lot from you. thanks again. :)

Glad you enjoyed it. That's what comes out when I run out of linguistic ideas. LOL

Oh, imagine all the spinning on language courses. It just wouldn't get anyone anywhere. :)))))

Thanks!

A little bit dizziness @@"

Not by the rotating of the camera, but by your sexy and romantic voice. : P

Another great lesson! : )

I found the lesson interesting. I have never been very good with speaking foreign languages; people that are multi-lingual amaze me. I do not have a natural aptitude for it at all.

Interesting camera work too. Sexy!

Oh, you just have to jump in the foreign language pool, it's fun! :)

Well, camera work is there to hide the lack of content. LOL
