12-10-2017 07:00

Pope Francis talks about some problems. He sees them on the Internet. First, he discusses pornography. Then he talks about ‘sexting’ and online bullying. He also mentions ‘sextortion’ and online sexual trafficking. Last, he says that there are live views on the Internet. People can see bad things live. The Pope thinks that this is terrible.

Pope Francis says that there is too much sex on the Internet. He says that it cannot be good for children.

Difficult words: pornography (videos of sexual acts), sexting (when people send naked pictures to one another), bullying (hurt someone who is weaker than you), sextortion (when you make someone do something sexual), sexual trafficking (sending people to other places to make them have sex for money), live view (a video that is happening right now).

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