Transcript

My favourite website is probably Youtube.

Youtube is a place where everybody uploads videos, and I'm sure you've seen it.

Um, it actually, I found out recently that Youtube uploads 100 hours of videos every 60 seconds on Youtube. So, you're never going to see all the youtube videos ever, but there's a lot of great content that you can watch.

I like to watch bloggers, animations, short films, everything! Music videos, especially, and even instructional videos like 'how to make a cake' or anything like that.
