Stand by me

Nivea UK

Every act of care matters and right now is more important than ever. The smallest act of care can make the biggest difference. It can make someone’s day and helps them to face challenges that would otherwise be impossible.

As a global business NIVEA have put a €50 million fund to help support communities impacted by Covid-19. They are also now producing 1 million litres of disinfectant and 500 million skin and hand care products, which will be donated to hospitals and NGOs globally.



When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No, I won’t be afraid
Oh, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

So darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand, stand by me
Stand by me

Stand by me, oh, stand by me

Darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now, stand by me
Stand by me
Whenever you’re in trouble, won’t you stand by me?
Oh, stand by me
Won’t you stand now?
Oh, stand, stand by me, stand by me
Stand by me


In it together

In it together

Green Renaissance

The last few weeks have been a roller coaster of intense emotions. All of us, all over the world, have had to start to change the way we do things. Many have cut back on travel plans, some are avoiding crowded spaces, and most have dropped handshakes and hugs for elbow bumps and foot shakes.

As hard as it might be for some of us right now, it seems that what we need is more empathy, understanding, and compassion for one another. Most of us are some version of scared – this is a change and a big change. Like with any change, we don’t know what will happen and how it will turn out. But what we do know for sure, is that we can’t really do too much without each other.

Vocabulary chunks to learn from video :

The conductor is not just a time beater
It has different elements to it
We are going to make music
It’s not a shouting match
Taking the rubbish out
It’s a calling
Infectious energy
Your fellow musicians
A positive vibe
We need positive vibes these days
Ode to Joy
Everybody knows the tune
I could not imagine the world without music
I would like to be a fly on the wall
There you go
Nature is such a powerful force
Belting down with rain
An amazing show of power
The purpose of life
To live life that is full of interesting things
Not stuck in a rut
Read about new things
Be interested
Have you heart open for new ideas
Seeking perfection


Cherish the little things that are magical out there

Vocabulary chunks to learn from the video :

You worked out with him
How did that come about ?
You’ve got to be simple
You’ve got to work on your craft
Think outside the box
You should always be a kid
You always want to learn
You ask questions
I was there 3 hours before him
I look up to Kobe Bryant
I’m here because I want to be better
A book that will be a best seller
That’s not going to be true to myself
Because at the end of the day you will not always remember everything they tell you
When you write it down you can always go back to it
