comment Could someone please clarify if I'm translating these two sentences correctly?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is several questions combined into one. It might be more beneficial and clearer if you separate these into individual, more focused questions about the particular parts that give you trouble.

comment Difference between 「なるベく」 and 「なるべき」
Do you have an example sentence or anything? I don't think I've seen these used in similar ways, but I could be wrong.

comment Japanese: “osowarata”?
@snailboat For the books it must be that! I can't find anything else about it, either, and I agree that in the recording it's probably just the singer saying the っ in some unusual way

comment Difference in usage between クラス and 学級
In elementary schools the concept of a class is similar. We don't have ~組, of course, and in junior high and above the system changes, but elementary schools will have a single group of kids being taught by one teacher. The class won't change for the year. So instead of saying 3年2組 we'd just say Mrs. Johnson's 3rd grade class, using the name of the teacher to identify which class.
