I have a collection of vinyl records from the 80s, however, the music played for dance choreography at dance school seems from sounds from the 80s.

I have some collections of our dance choreography with the most present sound.

Even my English learning path is till quite far but I will try my best day by day with British Council.

I had many vinyl records in my house. As a children, my brother, sister and I played with vinyl records. We also had turntable. Unfortunately, for us everything this was just toys. We used to play with records as they are frisbee. It was vinyl of Svetlana Velickovic, Dragana Mirkovic, Saban Saulic... (Serbian singers). Now, I do not know if we have any vinyl records in the house. I am going to ask my father...

Hi there
I was a DJ, whell in actually I still playing the turntables but not like a professional... When i was 16 I bought my first turntables and my first vinyls! i really enjoy the sound that It makes, I can change the pitch! the tone and the velocity... It's funny! I played in some discos here in Barcelona, but the reallity it's  difficult to fine a disco with a couple of turntables... the normal equipment are 2 CDJ or a PC... With this all the people can be a DJ hahahaha!! 
I'm new here, my english is not quite good but i'm gonna pratice and learn It! piano piano!
Many thanks,

I remenber vinyl record had two formats. 33s 45s. The first one has many melodies and the second just two. One on each face. I haven't seen again 45s vinyl record on shops.

When i was young I listened to vinyl record. I rememenber my father liked to buy it. We didn't have many of them because it was expensive. I agree that vinyl record is another kind of product.

I was reading some information about it. As I see, the vinyl has more fidelity than a CD. However, when I used to listen to vinyl records, there was a little sound induced by the needle (as if something is dragged), which is reproduced through the speakers.
I have not listened any vinyl record for a long time!!!

Hello, personally I never listened to a vinyl record, and I don't know the difference between them and the cd's. And I don't know if it sounds better than an MP3. In general I like all kind of music, from any culture or any country. I don't have any favorite record cover, but I have some favorite singer like Celine Dion. I think this listening activity is very interesting because it show us a different refashion ship with music, a different point of view.

 it's good.I want you make big ward in  Expression
