[tlhIngan Hol] Rising Heroes Video

For Nerd Fitness Rising Heroes, a real life RPG sort of thing I'm doing
online, one of the tasks this week is to record a short video to send to my
squad-mates about the progress I am making towards one of my goals. Since
that goal is learning Klingon, I thought it would be appropriate to make
some of the video in Klingon. They won't understand it, but I'd like it to
be accurate nonetheless, so I was hoping someone could look at this and let
me know if there are any errors:

tlhIngan Hol vIHaD. cha' ngoQ vIghaj. wa'DIch: Hol patlh ghojwI' vIchav
vIneH. patlhvam chavlu'meH, qep'a'Daq qaD tu'lu'. 'op mu'tlhegh mughnISlu'.

jupwI', DaH peja'. ngoQraj bochav'a'? tlhIngan vIttlheghvam yIqaw:

Intended translation is:

"I am studying Klingon. I have two goals. First: I want to achieve the
ghojwI' rank. To achieve this rank, there is a challenge at the qep'a'. One
must translate some sentences. In order to train for this challenge, I have
written the vocabulary I need to know on cards. I study them while I am
walking. In order to study grammar, I am rereading The Klingon Dictionary
and I have started reading another book, "From the Grammarian's Desk."

"When I hear Klingon, I want to be able to understand it. It is my second
goal. This goal is more difficult than my first goal. Last year, I knew
many words, but if someone spoke to me, I could not understand them. Thus,
I need to train my ears. I have several recordings. In the recordings,
experts speak Klingon. I listen and try to write the words they say. I also
listen to Klingon songs.

"Friends, now you report. Are you achieving your goals? Remember the
Klingon proverb: To really succeed, you must enjoy eating poison. "
