We Are the World 2020

We Are the World (2020) Together at Home

This is a SUPER uplifting (“super mega uplifting” as my daughter would say) video to watch where you will hear some amazing voices from You-tubers. If you are familiar with the original We Are the World song from 1985 than you are old like me. If you don’t know anything about the original song (or you are just feeling nostalgic), click here to see it and laugh at the 80’s hair-dos and let me please introduce you to Cindy Lauper and a couple of young guys, Micheal Jackson and Bruce Springsteen. Then you can come back and watch this one too!

Bill Gates BBC Breakfast

BBC One – Breakfast

It’s an interesting watch and we think we need to start listening to him and scientists who know what they are talking about, so click here to go to BBC Breakfast or watch the Youtube video of the same interview below (remember with Youtube videos you can also put on automated subtitles).

Also take a look at other TED talks. It’s a great way to stay connected to English while you’re home. You can turn on the subtitles in English or Spanish.
