Special Carpool Karaoke – level 1

27-03-2018 07:00

It is World Down Syndrome Day on Wednesday 21st. Fifty mums from Britain make a video. It is a carpool karaoke video.

They sing with their children to the song ‘A Thousand Years’. They also sign the words to the song.

The video marks the day. The mums hope that the video can change how people see others with Down syndrome.

Difficult words: Down Syndrome (a person with Down Syndrome needs help to live a normal life), carpool karaoke (singing to a song in the car), sign (use your hands to talk), mark (celebrate).

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