Brave man in a shop - level 2

Brave man in a shop - level 2

16-10-2013 14:00

A security camera video was released this week. It shows a shop assistant in New York who protects his shop with a machete.

First, a robber with a gun comes into the shop. He wants the shop assistant to give him money. However, the shop assistant is a brave man and he is not afraid of the robber. He takes out his machete and protects his shop with it.

The robber runs out of the shop and the shop assistant runs after him. Unfortunately, the robber escapes.

Difficult words: machete (big knife), robber (someone who steals money), escape (get away).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

The October issue of magazine Drive has been published. You can buy the magazine here.
