I'd just like to thank you guys for the excellent work. I am a Brazilian and I teach English. I use VOAnews a lot with my students. The videos are a must for the listening skill and now with this new segment it's going to be much better.
The following words are for Alex Villarrreal: you are just amazing. I enjoy the way you run the show and the video recordings. Just keeping going.

Tks, Aleixo.
