Social media and you!




So, what do you think the people "devined" by the magician should have done to protect their privacy?


The new generation is called the Millennials and are digital natives. Children today seem to be born with a remote
planted in their heads and a keyboard installed
as an extension to their fingers!  



Watch this video and read this text about social media.
Then do the quiz to see how much you've understood.
You can read the text as many times as you want to get all answers right!


Language Point
You may say you didn't need to see the video to realise the problem. Do you need to revise Modal Verbs, though? Well, here's a tutorial and practice activities for you. ...

Then write an argumentative essay in the canvas on  social media. What are  some positive and negative aspects of using social media for young people?  How do you think they can affect the lives of people who are involved? Use your own experiences as exmples.
