Nepali monologue: “If some person wants to learn Nepali, they will learn by themselves”

This is the transcript and translation of the first part of this Video (Until 1:11)

So I give you the translation first. And then it will be your task, reading the text, to grasp, what each Nepali sentence and word means. Also refer to the comments under the Video and here, to learn about mistakes that I might have made.

Namaste friends, I am making for now only a small video,
because nowadays I am quite busy.
Let’s say: I will be probably quite busy next week.
And so that is why I will probably not get a chance to make that many videos.
But at least I want to say this
– but only in Nepali! –
I mean: Again if some person who does not speak that much Nepali, a person who does not know that much, will not understand,
and so there will not be much advantage to it.
But it is like that:
I mean,
if some person wants to learn Nepali, they will learn, they will learn by themselves.
And it is possible, that some person will watch some video like this one and won’t understand a thing.
Afterwards they will think:
“Wow, I haven’t understood anything, what shall I do?
Well, I will learn Nepali really well and afterwards I will also understand everything!
“”
