I like to listen to English songs its music is so nice and words too but sometimes hard to understanding words, all the time trying to understanding by translating it to enjoy and dance more on it in all like as I prefer Eglish songs all the time because of melody and the sound of the singer is so good too.

Happy to see someone learning english this year!

what a great podcast, I really enjoyed from part one to at the end, for me I think I will be lucky person if I meet Cristiano Ronaldo who one of the best football player in the world and I choose him because I love watch football matches either the team of Ronaldo played or any good footballer team.

in other topic which is the songs, I prefer to hear Arabic songs due to the richness of the vocabularies compared with English, and of course the other reason is that it easily to understand without effort or searching for some phrases that unclear

.

so, it is my first comment on this site. I don't know why are you need this information, but I want that you know I did not want to leave comments here earlier, but my teacher asked me to do this (hi Galina Alexandrivna)
So, I have a problems with task 7 and task 8, because nobody said that answers to the tasks must be written in lowercase letters, and when checking the answers were not counted
About music. I sometimes don’t care what language I listen to music in, it's can be Russian, English, or even Japanese, because I often watch videos related to music, and I like how something happens to the beat of the song

Hello My newest username,

The answers ask you to complete the sentences so normal sentence rules apply, including capitalisation. Perhaps we should add this to the instructions.

I like both of them. I love listening songs in my language because singers, who sing it know what I live, my way of life and sing about it. But I like songs in English too. They help me learn English, improve my skils. And there is one more thing - many popular singers sing their songs in English (at least sometimes) and I have a very big choice of sort and stile of mucic, more bigger, than my own language.

I don't prefer songs in one language, but if you sum them up, most of the tracks are in English.Most of the songs I listen to have a genre whose tracks are very few in my native language.For example, in dubstep, trap, riddim genres, there are few words at all, and those are mostly English.I also listen to rap, and it turns out that real rap is read in English.This language is spoken by bands such as Hollywood Undead, Linkin Park, Neffex and many others, which also influences this.
As a result, there are only a couple of songs in my native language and almost all in English.

Prefer songs in my own language. And music from all over the world.

I prefer to listen songs in my own language because i can understand the meaning of the whole song. but if had to choose, i'd say that i'm interested in listen to English music since it helps me to improve my English language ability.

I love to listen songs in english but i also enjoy the other languages music too.It does not matter for me i just enjoy the music to listen.
