Boat in Thailand – level 1
A boat overturns in Thailand. More than a hundred people are on it. At least 13 people die. Many people are still missing.
Most of the passengers are Muslim. They are coming back from a rite.
Accidents like this happen in Thailand. The safety standards are lower there than in other countries.
Difficult words: overturn (when the a boat turns over in the water), be missing (if you are missing, people do not know where you are and if you are alive), rite (a ceremony, a special religious event).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
