Gossip is Good – level 1

28-06-2022 15:00

Some people think that gossip is bad. But scientists say that it is good. We gossip to get important information. The gossip tells us who to trust. This helps us because we live in very big groups.

Gossip also helps us to live longer. When we gossip, we bond with our family. We bond with our friends. If we bond, we can know more people. If we know a lot of people, we can live longer.

People think gossip is bad now. But this idea is new. It used to be a good thing. It still is good!

Difficult words: gossip (to talk about someone who is not with you), trust (when you think something is safe), bond (to feel good around people).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
