Budhi learns how to stay safe online in this issue.

Staying Safe Online

Staying Safe Online

In this issue, Budi learns that it can be dangerous to meet up with someone that you meet online.
 

Budi is chatting online on facebook on his phone. Adhi asks who it is. Budi says it’s a girl and shows Adhi a picture. Adhi asks if Budi has ever met the girl in real life and is sceptical. Adhi teases Budi about his internet girlfriend. Budi says they are planning to meet for a date at the cinema.

 

Adhi tells Budi that he needs to get dressed up before he meets this girl. Budi is shy about talking about his date. Santi offers to help him and take him shopping so he can buy something nice.

 Understanding

At the beginning of the story, Budi tells Adhi and Santi that he is going to meet a girl that he has met on Facebook. Why might this be a bad idea?

Activity 1: In this activity, have a look at each question and decide which is the best answer. Then, think if you have ever spoken to someone that you have only ever met online.
Who do you chat to online?

At the shops. Santi helps Budi find a nice t-shirt. “That looks nice. You should buy that.”Santi asks Budi where they are meeting. Budi says that they are meeting at a cafe and then going to the cinema. Santi tells Budi that it could be dangerous to meet someone that you’ve only met online. You shouldn’t go alone.  Budi goes to buy cinema tickets and then to the cafe.

 

Budi waits at a cafe to meet the girl and Hendro and Fauzi show up - and mock Budi - it was them all the time. Hendro had used a fake picture to pretend he was a girl to make a fool of Budi.  Budi is really upset and leaves to meet his friends.

 

His friends are at the youth centre and talking the coach. The coach hears Budi’s story and looks worried. She tells them that they all have to take care online and shows them a poster.

Grammar

During the story, Budi makes plans to meet at a cafe and then go to the cinema. Budi and Santi use the present continuous ('to be' in the present tense + verb + ing) to show this:

 "Where are you meeting this girl?"

"We're watching a film at the cinema." 

Have a go at the activity below to practise more of these types of sentence. If you want to know more, check out the Grammar Pages on our Learn English website.

Activity 2: In this activity, learn more about the present continuous for future plans.
Can you complete the sentences with the correct word?

Tip 1: Be nice to people online:  This has a image of a chat stream from facebook/what’s app with smiley faces. Tip 2: Take care with what you share: This has an image of someone looking really ashamed while others laugh at a picture on a phone (we can’t see the picture). Tip 3: Keep personal information private: This has an an image of a house with a cross and a phone with a cross Tip 4: Check your privacy settings:

 

Tip 5:Know how to report posts: An image of the report posts page on a social site. Tip 6: Keep your passwords safe: This has an image of someone typing 1234 for a password with a cross through it. Tip 7: Never meet anyone in person you’ve only met online: This has the image of a man posing as a teenage girl online. Tip 8: If you see anything online that you don’t like tell someone you trust: This has an image of a sad girl showing something on the computer to her parents.

 

Page 8: A happy ending.

When you meet someone online you never know whether this is a real person or a fake, or even someone who wants to hurt you. If we plan to meet him o her. it's advisable to go with someone else and to tell your friends.

One of the possible dangers is meeting someone with criminal background. So, first we have to be sure that the person we meet has got real identity, not false one.

People on the Internet can be dangerous.
Some people on the Internet have a bad intention.
Young people do not bother to post pictures of them on the Internet and leave personal data available to others, making it easier for unknown people to collect data from you.

My most sncera opinion is that it is never good to meet or talk people online that not only conoses because it made you attractive for your photos does not mean that it is that person since it can lead us to different arrangements such as kidnapping extortions or things for the style
