Young People and Race – level 1

16-09-2020 07:00

Nowadays, young people communicate mostly on social media. Young people get their news and information from Twitter, Instagram, or influencers.

Young people often speak about social problems. Racism is one social problem. For young people, it is important to speak about racism. Many young people are interested in this problem.

One account on social media focuses on social problems. The account has 10,000 people who like it in June. However, it has 1.4 million people in September. It means that people are more and more interested in social problems.

However, it is not good to believe all information on social media. Some accounts support racism. Families and friends must speak about these problems openly. It is not good to talk about them only on social media.

Difficult words: communicate (to talk or write with other people), influencer (a person who writes his ideas and opinions on social media, and many people believe him), social problem (a problem that many people know about or talk about), racism (when somebody does not like somebody else because this person has different skin color), account (a person’s information on a website or a social media site).

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