Tarot Cards 4

All this time I had the cards, and I intended to learn how to read them ... sometime later. Until about a week ago, I thought that I could do this by studying English sources. There will be multiple benefits. Firstly, it is interesting to me. Studying what is interesting, you quickly begin to understand the language.

Well done again, Oleks!

All this that time, (comma needed) I had the cards, and I intended to learn how to read them ... sometime later at a later time. Until about a week ago, I thought that I could do this that by studying English sources. There will be multiple several benefits (advantages). Firstly, it is interesting to me. Studying what is interesting (If you study materials that interest you), you (will) quickly begin to understand the language (in which it is written).

Hi Oleks!

Very good point! We should only read about things we are interested in (when it comes to learning a foreign language) and not "force ourselves" to read texts that we have no interest in!

The others have done a great job of evaluating your extract.

I just have one comment

1. Pronunciation of the word "sources" ->
