Every day you can learn something. For instance, the other day I learned about this motivational cartoon from our student in 4º ESO Susana, who used on the cover of her folder (great idea!!! Thanks!!!):
This is the right attitude to face challenges in life, especially at school.
But not long ago (actually, it was yesterday), I also learned about something from our Geography and History teacher Mr Jiménez: 'permafrost' and how climate change is affecting it. This could have disastrous consequences in certain regions in the world and could even be a threat to our lives.
Some articles for you to read about the issue:
Melting permafrost in Arctic will have $70tn climate impact – study | Environment | (The Guardian)
And some videos:
Inside the permafrost 'time tunnel' - BBC News
Global warming causing Canada's permafrost to release ancient bacteria (CBC)
Siberia: The Melting Permafrost | ARTE Documentary (a very interesting multilingual documentary in English, French and even in Russian!!!)
Listening exercise for you to do:
