How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
Idols and Depression
Due to the harsh nature of the kpop industry, it is not uncommon for kpop idols to develop depression. Here are a few Idols who have suffered from depression but have overcome it Media Monsters Squad CEO: @amobts Media Monsters Team: @Qilin94 @KokoroNoTakara @Helixx @Thekreviewer @nimm14 Monster Bloggers: @PrettieeEmm @SimplyAwkward @BBxGD @VeronicaArtino @CynthiaForeman Executive Media Team @stevieq @SarahVanDorn None of these images or videos belong to Media Monsters Writer @PrettieeEmm, Monster Blogger HEECHUL -SUJU After Hankyung’s leave, member Heechul became depressed especially. He lived in the same dorm as Hankyung and had a special relationship with him. He said, “I was in a big chaos. It was difficult for me to laugh on TV and dance on stage.” Afterwards, he did not go on stage including year-end award shows. For 3 months, he lived in seclusion, locking his door. His only friends were two cats. Heechul revealed, “I had some lingering emotions. Since I didn't meet any people, depression got worse. I had lived with Hankyung, drank together and was really close. It was mentally difficult.” His mind became comfortable after thinking, “when me and Hankyung do well we can meet each other.” JOKWON -2AM The happy virus of K-Pop, Jo Kwon! He always brings laughter and joy to those around him. “I was fearful because I didn’t know when I would be cut. I even suffered from depression during those eight years of training" But he pushed through it and was able to rise above it. His determination and willpower is simply astounding and admirable. TAEYEON -SNSD This issue came up around the I Got a Boy era when Taeyeon outwardly admitted her depression “After my schedule is finish, I return home and feel lonely and empty inside. I don’t know what to do about it,” she remarked. KISEOP -U-KISS "Before coming into U-KISS, I found my dream and had planned on following it. But wherever I went, the companies wouldn’t pick me and I always failed. I eventually gave up and went into 2 months of harsh Depression. I thought a lot about the possibility of suicide" "My mom…my mom was thinking of me and she cried herself to sleep. I didn’t see my mom cry often. After watching her cry, I realized what I was doing…I was thinking about suicide and didn’t even go out to meet friends." "But after seeing my mom cry and try to make me feel better, I got back up. After that, I told myself I would work harder and never give up" PARK BOM - 2NE1 When Park Bom was growing up in the United States, she was an avid soccer player and dreamed of being a soccer star. One of her best friends at the time died while playing soccer with her, shocking and depressing her. She received psychiatric care for the trauma she experienced and was prescribed amphetamine drugs. TABLO -EPIK HIGH Epik High’s Tablo confessed about his state of depression which sparked a lot of attention. Tablo, who has suffered from depression at a very young age, confessed, “Depression is integrated into my life.” “I don’t know if I ever overcame it… I’m okay though, I’m not crazy.” Tablo shared his thoughts on the topic of depression, “I think everyone in the modern world is depressed in some way.” May also add his snaps make you feel happy to be alive he's such an inspiration and I look forward to them everyday Media Monsters Taglist Come join us A: @AaliyahNewbell @AshleiRyals B: @BTSxEXO @Bangtanss C: @CandyApple22 D: @deeeDUH E: @EvilGenius @EmilyGardner F: @FalseLove @Foxxyjinxx J: @JessyRay19 @jungkooknovieka @JohnEvans @JasmineGregory K: @kouvarisb @KassiIverson @kimchikpop @KwonOfAKind L: @LadyL @Leolaring M: @Mightymuffin @merryjayne13 @mbg3t @mycreativename @MelissaGarza @mrsax2018 @MorganAlys N:@nimm14 @normabm7 P: @PierceHorizon R:@requiem101 S: @simpsonsamantha V: @Vay754 @VIPFreak2NE1 Z: @ZakariahForbes @ZoilaObregon DO NOT COPY TAGLIST If you want to be removed please message us and we will untag you!
