  11. I got reminded of the Japanese video game titled "Samurai Showdown". It's nice that the words are alliterative, but come to think about it, it sounds more interesting. A coupling of words about Eastern warriors and which is from a Western game. Also using a word taken from a card game term for the title of video games.

  16. I really appreciate the lessons you give us. Thank you a lot! I always wait for new episodes of News Review. I should say that the idiom 'a double-edged sword' is extremely useful and we have something like that in russian, but instead of 'sword' we have 'stick'.

  17. Hi, can you help me to understand the term of (Alpha male)
