Cyberbullying

I've just finished my newest listening activity, and it deals with one of the most challenging topics that faces people today, specifically children: bullying or being mean to other people. Such behavior can hurt feeling, cause depression, and even lead to suicide. Give it a try and feel free to share your experiences or thoughts on this topic.

  1. Nowadays, bullyng is very common. It happens, for example, at a lot of schools, every day. I think that people should pull together to stop this big problem that is being disastrous for lots of families, kids and teenagers. As human beings, we have to respect everyone - we can't face someone whose culture, appearance or race is different and mock and insult him! We have to accept everyone and built an united world without violence and disrespect.

  2. I just finished the Cyberbullying exercise and I really liked it because the development of the activity was quite ordered. I would've extend a little bit more the pre-reading to make it more personal so that the kids can relate to the subject. I loved the Internet research because this gives the students the opportunity of get specific information by themselves.
    Cyberbullying being the kind of topic that it is gives a lot of information and this can develop the conscience about this in the students. I really liked it. Thank you.

  3. Hi! My name is Adriana and I want to congratulate you on this special topic. I´ve made my students listen to the track and discuss about this important issue.Making teenagers become aware of the consequences of cyberbullying is something we all teachers should aim at.I find this page very useful and I really use it a lot. I´d like to call your attention on some little mistakes I found so that you can correct them. Hope you don´t mind. Here they are:
    3. The girl's teacher just "things"(thinks) that she needs to
    C. "The"(They) wrote some awful messages.
    C. "reading"(read) books on suicide prevention-
    Helping each other makes us better people. Thanks.

  5. Bullying and cyberbullying is becomes popular in schools. I used to have a friend, she was a victim of bullying. I feel every our classmates around her, always criticize and said nasty comments about everything belong to her, like weight, clothes or hair. At that time, I didn't stand out for tell them about the problem of bullying. No teacher helped us, only bullied person who have to stand up for fighting for themselves.

  12. question number nine:


    I met a girl at school who came from another country and my class mates teased her and then she left the school because I can´t stand to be treated badly.

    I do many years try to intimidate a girl at school because I didn´t like but then we were friends.

  13. I believe that the problem of bulling has always been important, however now it has become a great problem of today's youth. Teenagers are changing when they get bullied. Cyberbullying is much worse that just 'simple' bulling, as it can be very hard for teachers and parents to detect such cases.
