Bus drivers in Paraguay - level 1

Bus drivers in Paraguay - level 1

05-09-2013 06:00

Eight bus drivers from Paraguay lose their jobs. It is hard for them because they have no jobs. The bus drivers need to work again.

The bus drivers do something shocking. They hurt themselves. They lie down and they have nails in their hands. It must be very bad for them.

People now talk about their situation. Their bosses want to give the five drivers their jobs back. But the bus drivers will stop only if all eight of them have their jobs back.

Difficult words: hurt (do something bad to the body), nail (long and thin metal thing).

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