Worker bees can leave. Even drones can fly away. The Queen is their slave.

I liked the video that tributes to Martin Luther King Jr. This one teach me so much more because of the details and dates that had in it. It was a full biography which I hope that would help me in my essay. Keep up the good job with the blog, teacher.

Really liked the Gandhi video. It so surreal the way that one man doing "nothing" was capable of so much.

Nice videos.
I like Gandhi's message in the pictures.
Awfully reminds me of "Man in the Mirror" from Michael Jackson.

I really loved the videos about Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr and Nelson Mandela. I think it would be useful and interesting to watch the "Long walk to freedom" in class. It seems to me that is a very touching and educational movie.
Thank you!

Doing the grammar exercises in the computer is a great way to practice. I think that this is something that should be brought up to every student and subject.

Thank you for the exercises on phrasal verbs teacher, they were very helpful. As for the videos, I really admire Nelson Mandela for working towards the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime. He held a conviction that "inclusivity, accountability and freedom of speech" were the fundamentals of democracy, and was driven by a belief in natural and human rights.

Hi Teacher ^^

I just watched all the videos and
Wow! The U2, Ordinary Love lyric video is really expressive and meaningful, the animated text effects and visual conceits shows how humanist the song is. Without a doubt it portrays Nelson Mandela humanistic side, as he was one of the greatest humanists of our time.

Oh.. and thank you for the grammar exercises, it's a great way to practice for tomorrow test. :)
