We need to take care our environment. Our seas are trashed a lot. Our forests are burning! We're making a plenty of trashes and don't recycle them! First of all, we need to teach aour children to take care the nature. Cause they will grow like a conscient persons.

This topic is actually quite interesting because we (humans) have taken nature for granted, i.e., we haven't respected it as we should, and the result, as mentioned in the text, has been devastating: animals and plants have been dying. Nevertheless, there's still time for changes, such as those already commented above. By respecting nature, we respect our existence!

I would recommend youtube videos about the waste of plastic life. Perhaps this can be awareness. We can deal with plastic life.

Hi, I couldn´t practice this lesson because it didn´t show me any reading, only a picture, this is the second time that I try to do it but it doesn´t show me anything. Could you help me? Thanks!!

Hi Vanessa Rodrìguez,

Thanks for letting us know. I've just checked the page and it seems fine, so it may have been a temporary error. Can you see the reading text now?

If not: which picture can you see - is it (1) the picture of rubbish on a beach, or (2) the picture of a seal with a plastic bottle? Do you find the same problem with other pages (e.g. this one)? 

If it is still not working, one solution is to try opening the page with a different web browser and see if it works. I hope it works now but please let us know again if not, and I will investigate further. Thanks :)

Hello KarenAvdalyan,

Jonathan replied to Vanessa Rodrìguez's post with several questions. You can see his answer below. If you're still having problems please reply to his post with the information he asked for and we'll see if we can help.


Most often, these kinds of problems are either compatibility problems where a particular device does not show the page correctly or local connection issues related to local internet regulations. You could try accessing the page via a different type of device (a laptop, for example, if you are having problems with a mobile device) to see if that helps.
