It is an interesting lesson!!!! Yasmin talked about a famous female singer, Shakira. I did not know that her mother is from Colombia and her father is Lebanese. So, I understood why her musics have a lot of Arabic influence.

This podcast is great. I've learned a lot of.

I like this part of the lesson because at the same time we discover a celebrity and learn english!

Thanks for these amazing lessons, it is quit good to improve your listening, besides brits accents are much better than the others.
