    (Saori, Sean and Anne get together on video chat)

    Sean: (Humming a song) You know what? I don't know all the words to a single song by heart.

    Anne: Even the lyrics to your favorite songs?

    Sean: Uh-huh. I might know the beginning of a song and the chorus, but that's usually it.

    Saori: I'm the same. I thought I couldn't memorize the lyrics to English songs because they were in my second language, but when I thought about it, I realized I couldn't memorize the lyrics to Japanese songs either.

    Anne: Really? So when you sing along to your favorite song, you can't sing the entire thing?

    Sean & Saori: No.

    Sean: I always thought that not knowing all the words to a song was normal until pretty recently. At karaoke, the words show up on the screen, so I never imagined that some people might not even need them.

    Anne: No way. I can sing songs in their entirety if I like them. It must be so unsatisfying not being able to sing a full song.

    Sean: (Jokingly) That's what humming is for, Anne.

    Saori: I admit, it must be nice to be able to sing every word in a song.
