- Hi Maggi,
You start your day at 6 Am! You are really a early
bird. I hope to get up like you.
X-files is my favorit TV drama. It is more than a TV
program to me. I always set this program on English
not on Korean dubing. I do not uderstand everything
but do just one third of the program at worst.
However, it is a kind of way to improve my ENGLISH and
good to listen to actors' real voice.

third of the program, but slowly but surely, as you watch more and more the
amount you understand will increase.
