Hi! I'm Leo, and I'm English.
Nur eine geringe Änderung: auf Arabisch, die Partikeln, die einzelne Buchstaben sind, sind nach ihnen ohne Zwischenraum.
Just a minor change: In Arabic, particles that are single letters don't have a space after them.

他在拉斯維加斯才呆了大概三個小時,錢就已經花光了。
He had only been in Las Vegas for about three hours when he had already spent all of his money.

我大概八點會回來。
I'll be coming back at around 8.

En ce moment, je veux me concentrer sur le français, mais il est possible qu'un jour j'essaie d'apprendre une langue asiatique.
At the moment, I want to concentrate on French, but it's possible someday I'll try to learn an asian language.

Ol bofosh, és molt millor si sols dius "(però/pos) jo no" o, fins i tot, "(però/pos) jo no vull". Sona més natural.
Ol bofosh, es mucho mejor si solo dices "pues yo no" o, incluso, "pues yo no quiero". Suena más natural.
Ol bofosh, it's much better to just say "..." or, even, "...". It sounds more natural.
