Dangerous hornets - level 1

China has a big problem. There are hornets which attack people. Many people are injured. Forty-one people are dead.

The hornets are very dangerous. They are called giant Asian hornets because they are really big. If they attack you, you have a bad problem.

The hornet attacks are normal in China. This year is worse. The hornets are usually in villages. Now, they are in the cities too. Firefighters try to help. They are destroying the hornets' homes.

Difficult words: hornet (animal which looks like a big wasp), injured (have problems with the body), destroy (break and finish).

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