Q: Что значит What's the difference between "believe in god" and "believe god"??

Yeah, you're right about your suspicion. XD

"I believe in God" can mean many things, not just "existence" or "can help me", depends on the context.

It could also mean you believe He is powerful to save, or whatever attribute, character, etc.

"I believe in God"=
"I believe in God's power to save."
"I believe in God's existence."
"I believe in God's promise."
"I believe in God's faithfulness."

It depends on what you're talking about/is happening.

"Believing in someone" really means you "put/have faith in them", that's the term!

Hope this gives you a much clearer picture.

Q: Покажите мне примеры предложений с what is the difference count and calculate.
A: count - to determine the number of something. It means adding up, or tally up.

e.g. She is counting the stars in the sky.
Note that it sounds strange to say that she is calculating the number of stars in the sky... unless she is a scientist, then that actually makes sense! So calculate in general implies more effort is required as compared to counting.

calculate - to figure out a value of something that involves more than simple counting.

e.g. Google Map can calculate the shortest route from your current location to your destination.

Hope that helps!

"He conducted an experiment" He took control of the experiment and carried it out (again, not literally. "carry out" can sometimes mean to see it through until the end). This is more specific than "He did an experiment."

Basically, conduct is used for doing something while controlling it, if that makes sense. It's just more specific than "do"

What is the difference between “Also” or “Too” ?
Because Sometimes the people said “ I have that one also “ 🤔 and not too
A: “Also” y “Too” significan “también” en español pero tienen distintos usos.

Ambos quieren expresar “algo más”
Pero “Also” es para añadir algo. Por ejemplo, “I have a car and I also have a bike”
O “I also do that too” también puede ser expresado

“Too” puede ser usado cuando hacer algo también o cuando quieres expresar que algo es mucho. Ejemplo, “I like my car way too much”

Cuando una persona dice algo tipo “I have one also” pienso que está hablando incorrectamente a menos de que haya dicho eso añadiendo a algo que había dicho anteriormente, pero aún así es normal entre los nativos de un idioma ya que ellos usualmente se entienden.

Siempre se usan esas expresiones entre amigos y de manera casual, pero no para algo más formal.

Q: What is the difference between Unperturbed and Serene.
A: "Unperturbed" is rarely used in spoken English. In means "having a neutral/indifferent reaction to negative stimuli". This stimuli can be naturally-occurring or caused by humans/animals etc. Examples:

"He was unperturbed by her explosive anger and harsh words."
"Unperturbed by the lawyer's manipulative questioning, the witness gave a clear, straightforward testimony."
"Strangely unperturbed by the thunderstorm, the mysterious man continued planting flowers in his garden."

"Serene" is a much more common word than "unperturbed". The meaning is also a bit different. It means "extremely calm" or "at peace with oneself/nature/life etc." It's so calm that it almost has a spiritual tone.

While "unperturbed" must be in reaction to negative stimuli, "serene" does not. You can be "serene" without any negative stimuli at all. You can be "serene" despite negative stimuli, but it is not required. Example:

"After two glasses of wine, the mom felt serene despite her kids' running around the house."

Other examples with "serene":

"The serene quietness of dawn."
"I always feel serene and refreshed after my morning yoga."
