To be honest, the language of song is not important for me, I most care about the rhythm. I don't like to mix the learning and entertaining, and I tend to do things attentively. When I enjoy songs, I could be totally relaxing. When I study language, I can learn efficiently.

Every culture has its own beautiful style in the music art , I prefer to take the best from each one and enjoying them all .

Good moorning
hope you are well Tess and Ravi can I ask about Carolina ..when she said( And there’s a little white star on the top) I think that the WORD little refer to quantity so why she did not say  a ...small white star on ....and Thanks in advance

Hello Khaled v,

You're right in thinking that 'little' and 'a little' are often used as quantifiers (to speak about the amount of something, e.g. 'I bought a little food'), but 'little' is also a common adjective that means 'small'.

Carolina could also say 'a small white star', but 'a little white star' is also correct.

All the best

English is very important to me because I love music and movie.

the language doesn't matter to me If I like the song

I like listening to music in English, it helps my understanding better, but I prefer music in my language (Portuguese).

I'd like to listen to improve my English Language, but sometimes i really face some challenges with colloquial expressions,

I agree with songs in English preference. I prefer songs in English.

I like Arabic old songs, but I still like listening to foreign songs too!
I enjoy any beautiful song that has good lyrics.
