Let’s All Listen to Teacher Melanie! :)

Earlier, I watched the opening ceremony of the London Olympics 2012 at Solar Sports TV. I think there were more than 200 nations that participated in the opening. The  opening was fanta-bulous! (HAHA, I mean fantastic and fabulous) 🙂

I went in front of our family computer to go online and search for Teacher Melanie, then I saw this video (Pronunciation – How to Say the Names of all the Summer Olympic Sports.)
