Facebook is very popular. Almost 1 billion people visit it every day. Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook.

Mark Zuckerberg goes to a meeting. There, he meets with Angela Merkel and other people.

Mark Zuckerberg speaks at the meeting. He talks about the Internet. He says that it is a human right.

He says that the Internet can be good for refugees. For example, they can talk with their families. Facebook wants to give the Internet to refugees.

Difficult words: create (to make something), human right (a human right is something you must have to have a good life), refugee (a person who must leave his or her country because of something bad like war).

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

Do you think the Internet is a human right?
