    hi Mr.Young, I’m Wang Sen, the podcast is really great ! I have to say you are a deligent teacher ! thanks for ur great podcast ! when i play the PC game called Great Thief Auto: san andreas, the player in the game said :”let’s keep it real” , what’s that mean ? and the origin? and “hey man, what’s cracking?” I know this means what’s up, but what’s the origin ? And ,still, I got many problems in listening to Eminem’s rap, some of the expressions are totally new to me. and ..would you mind if I ask… do you have the full version of the song called REACHING OUT ? the singers are Queen & Paul Rodgers. i can’t download it from any website

    PS, if you want to know something about Chinese Language, I can teach you too, as a change, hah
