Breastfeeding experiment - level 2

Breastfeeding experiment - level 2

12-01-2016 07:00

People created a social experiment to see how others really react to breastfeeding in public spaces. Part of the experiment showed a situation on the tube in London.

An actress started breastfeeding on the train and a man, also an actor, was not happy about it. He told her that she was making him feel uncomfortable, and he asked her to stop.

The man became increasingly louder and one of the passengers stepped in. He took a seat between the man and the woman to show his support for the mother. A moment afterwards, a person with a camera entered the carriage and told everyone about the experiment.

Difficult words: increasingly (more and more), step in (to get involved in a situation), carriage (one part of the train).

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