Previously we’d been stuck in the era of the spread of images, so the majority of Internet Stars were handsome men and pretty girls with cute faces. Of course there were a few vulgar pranksters that shot vulgar hoax images to attract attention. Now it is very different, internet stars have already become the talk of social media, opinion leaders, and are known as the leading lights of fashion.
Each lesson is centered around a natural dialogue with key vocabulary directly prepared and translated for your use. You can also listen to each sentence as an individual recording to improve your listening and comprehension skills.
