Today we're talking about umm feisty character
feisty young girl
what is feisty?
okay feisty is... fiesty
that's a good word and it's a word that native speakers use quite a bit. if you describe someone as being feisty, it means that they have a lot of spirits, very kind of strong.
I think of fire ike they have this passion. right?
so when they tell you something it's like you can feel their energy.
yeah and they can easily fight back
umm.. so fire fighting. it's not a combination word but it just means they have this passion behind their voice
so when you have like feisty kid. it's a kid who's not gonna be like quiet and like 'okay' they're gonna fight. they're gonna be mischievous / a little/
and so the idea of being feisty, you could, we use that word usually to say a person's got passion in a good way umm but there're other ways we can say they have , you know / it could be kinda negative/ negative. but, we're talkig about a lady named.. a little girl.

from Sweden she is talking about the environment. she's yelling at lawmakers. you know. like really yelling at them you know.
'you destroyed my future'
and if you see image of her face, she's pointing her finger and you can see there's anger in her eyes. she's feisty.
yeah she is. but it's great I mean really because for a lot of us. we might not be adults see some of these climate changes affect us /in our life time?/
so dramatically I mean we see it kind of now. but maybe 30 40 50 years later it's a... it could be very different.
and that's what she's a pretty much been on about for the past. for a while actually it's just all these law makers were making decision about environment. that's never going to affect you in your life and how dare you steal my future.
that's her idea of like you're making decisions that affect me.
right(x2) so you know in 2000 just in 2018 in August

and it involved about a hundred thousand school children,
