You can also go to the library and get a library card and check out English and your native language there. (Diane M Barone/Marla H. Mallette, 2013).

To be able to visually see the beauty of nature is a great deal to human existence, especially when it comes from artistic matters such as pictures, videos, paintings etc. A book compared to a movie is like comparing a picture to the description of it.
