Hi hello good evening the rainforest is burning. If you're in the US, you might not know what you can do to help. Here's some ideas:

Today's accomplishment: with the help of a bunch of grammar references, Google Translate, and squinting at my Language Drops collection, I've written a few sentences in to a stranger!

I've been trying to learn, very slowly, since May.

The stranger in question is my AirBNB host for my upcoming stay in San Francisco, who is bilingual. (I also included the English translation of what I intended to say, of course.)
