These are ROUGH translations. Remember each dialect & family & individuals & age groups have their own way of speaking, pronunciation, spelling, and beliefs – all are valuable to know about. Some speak slowly, some speak fast, some pronounce with a rolling rl sound, some are not able to make specific sounds, others pronounce the “r” as if it were an “l”, many have diverse religious & political practices that also affect the language that is spoken today.
Practice speaking with live human beings & respect each individuals’ way of speaking. It’s best to practice without a machine and actually speak eye to eye, face to face with human beings – with Gratitude and with Respect for All of Creation. I try to mimic fluent speakers that make time to try and help me to speak and gain confidence to speak with them.
