Could I have a question? What "Over a third of teenagers reported feeling nervous and tired" means?
This mean teenagers reported feeling nervous and tired all over 30% ?

Hi monashining! Yes. 'Over a third' means more than 33%. So maybe 35% of teenagers said they felt nervous and tired. Does that make sense? Best wishes, Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens team)

Hi Emmobe. It's great that you came back and made the corrections. Good work! You should also use vary (v.) instead of variety (n.) here. :)

I think adults feel more stressed than teenagers.
Teenagers are in a way protected by their parents (usually) and adults around them (teachers and seniors). But the more people get old, the more they have responsibilities in a society they belong to.
I want to be a good adult! ✨

Hi Doughnut
How're you?
Do you have a good friend to talk with frankly?
Maybe you might want to take your frustration out on your trustful friend or get in your fear!✨
