Hi, Teacher.

Here Amandeep says "now this one is so me".
Could you explain what does it mean, please?
Thank you

Hi flower m,

The meaning of 'this one is so me' is 'this one suits me perfectly'. It is often used when a person is making a choice such as when buying clothes or looking at different places to live.

I know "waterloo" but there's a lot of songs from them that I don't remember the title.
I haven't seen neither movie nor stage version of "mamma mia"

Musicals sometimes come to Turkey. But I haven't watched musical yet.

Mamma Mia is a love story set on an Greek island

I really cannot get the "sneak peak" expression, would you clarify this?

Hello Riham-Hendawi,

There's a definition and example of 'sneak peek' (notice the spelling) in our dictionary – just enter 'sneak peek' in the search box (in the grey area on the right side of this page) and you'll see them!

Hi ,

at the end of the Stephen's speech in the studio which explain about musical theater
he says " what does it take to put on musical show"
what is that supposed to mean?

in advance thank you very much

Hi saeedahwaz,

I can't find that sentence in the episode - could you say where exactly it occurs?

The sentence could be paraphrased as 'What do we (actors, the director, the producer etc) have to do in order for the show to take place?'

Best wishes,
