  1. I want to find good pop music. Help me please.

    Are you looking for a specific language? Is it just for enjoyment or as a teaching aid? I like to think that my songs are a great mix of both fun to listen to and also teach. But if you’re looking for pop music to listen in the classroom or out, I would suggest searching online with google for the language you seek. There are also many things on You tube and I-tunes. Thanks for asking!

  2. Hi, Congratulations to the site owner for this marvelous work you’ve done. It has lots of useful and interesting data.

    Thank you for the compliments. I will take credit for the language songs and other materials on the site, and I will also pass along your remarks to my son who has created the site through his web design business, http://www.macscapacity.com
