2 Things you Must watch and 1 thing you should read this week!

1 Christiane Amanpour’s conversation with Chris Anderson.


This Tedtalk, with subtitles available in many languages and a transcript, is really worth* watching. She tells us about the importance of finding the truth from amongst* the fake news fed* to us on the media.

*Vocabulary notes:

  • worth watching = of value for you to do, for education, satisfaction, money…
  • amongst = in between others
  • to be feed news = the news they show us everywhere – on the radio, paper, tv, social media.
