Empathy glasses

Coursebook listenings are not enough for us to improve fast our listening skills, so here we have another 4 minutes of listening practice. 

This video is about empathy. According to the English wikipedia, empathy is "the capacity to recognize and, ..., share feelings (such as sadness or happiness) that are being experienced by another person." So it means to feel things and see things from the point of view of the other person. 

The quality of the images is not very good, and it's a shame some of the Spanish subtitles are misplaced right on top of the English subtitles, but anyway, it's a touching video which makes you think. I thought it was very inspiring. I wish we were always wearing those empathy glasses from the video. 

Language work
  • grieving her best friend
  • avoids relationships for fear of pain
  • struggling with sense of purpose

This video is very interesting. in this video looks reflected the lives of others.
The problems and situations. The good and bad.
Many people hide their feelings, we could help them with these glasses.
