Dangerous way for Chinese children – level 2

Dangerous way for Chinese children – level 2

08-04-2013 06:00

A group of children from one village in China face a dangerous journey home from school. If they want to get home, the children have to climb over a big mountain. The children climb about twenty meters on the ladders to the top of the mountain. They carry their bags and other things too. And it’s not just the children who travel this way. One dog uses the ladders too.

Parents are always very happy when they see the children again. The parents want a better journey to their village. They also believe a better future lies in their children’s education.

Interesting words: face (deal with), ladder (thing for climbing made of wood or metal).

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