«Umbrella» by Rihanna (feat. Jay-Z)

В очередной раз постараюсь убедить вас, что современной популярной музыке можно найти  место и применение на уроках английского языка. И в этом мне поможет песня «Umbrella» одной из самых популярных поп-певиц современности Rihanna. Название песни говорит само за себя, где ее можно использовать. Конечно же это будет тема Weather and Climate  (Unit 5 Form 9).
