Intro

1. Learn Vocabulary - Learn some new vocabulary before you start the lesson.

2. Read and Prepare - Read the introduction and prepare to hear the audio.

In the past few years, singer Norah Jones has become one of the most popular women in the world. Her first album, Come Away With Me, won 8 Grammy Award[/def]s and sold millions of copies all over the world. Her second album, Feels Like Home, is already the #1 album in 16 countries including the U.S., UK, Germany, France, Canada, Italy, Columbia and New Zealand.
Norah’s success is refreshing, because she’s not the type of musician who usually becomes so popular. She’s quiet, calm, classy and understated – unlike other worldwide pop stars like Madonna and Britney Spears, who are wild and controversial.
Read on to learn more about Ms. Jones and her new album!

Dialog

1. Study - Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.

Norah Jones is a truly original artist, with a unique sound and an easygoing personality. Her music reflects her approach to life, which is cool, calm and collected. Feels Like Home features 13 beautiful songs about life, love and friendship. “Sunrise” is a good example. It’s a song about a day in the life of two people in love. Check out some of the lyrics:

Sunrise, sunrise
Looks like mornin’ in your eyes
But the clocks held 9:15 for hours
Sunrise, sunrise
Couldn’t tempt us if it tried
‘Cause the afternoon’s already come and gone
And I said hoo…
To you
Surprise, surprise
Couldn’t find it in your eyes
But I’m sure it’s written all over my face
Surprise, surprise
There was something I could hide
When I see we made it through another day
