People thought 2020 would be a great year. Few people knew that the world would change so much. The biggest news was COVID-19. Many people died. There were lockdowns and people wore masks. The death of George Floyd in the USA started the Black Lives Matter movement. Joe Biden was voted as the President-elect of the USA.

People will have different memories of 2020. One man will never forget the explosion in Beirut. He thanked God his family was not hurt. A UK nurse said the news of the vaccines for COVID-19 made her happy. A woman in Japan was sad that the Tokyo Olympics were postponed. She said 2021 would be a good year.

Back to the the year 2020 lesson.
