This will be a new, continuing feature for tutoringyou.org readers. Easy to read and understand, this feature introduces you to words you may not have seen or used before. It is in story format with level 1 on Mondays, Level 2 on Tuesdays, and Level 3 on Wednesday. Each Level more harder than the previous Level. Not to worry, though. The new words are linked to their definitions, so I think you will be able to read at your Level without much difficulty. Always attempt to read at the higher Level. That’s how quicker learning is accomplished. Good luck and have fun learning English !
Dalai Lama Speaks with Greta – level 3
Last week, the Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, virtually met the Swedish climate activist and one of the world´s most recognizable individuals, Greta Thunberg.
They were joined by two leading climate scientists for a discussion titled ´The Crisis of Climate Feedback Loops´. The Dalai Lama honored the courage that Thunberg and millions of young people around the world were demonstrating by standing up for and demanding climate justice. His primary message throughout the event was that all 7.8 billion humans needed to think and act as a single community.
The Dalai Lama said that he felt real hope after hearing Thunberg speak while Thunberg urged people to educate themselves on climate issues.
Difficult words: recognizable (somebody who people can immediately identify), climate feedback loop (something that speeds up or slows down a climate change), climate justice (a term that is used to frame global warming as an ethical and political issue rather than a purely environmental or natural issue).
