From India to Britain on Solar Power – level 1

From India to Britain on Solar Power – level 1

15-09-2016 15:00

A man has a dream. He wants to travel from India to Britain by road. However, he does not like the pollution in India. He wants to travel in a clean vehicle.

He takes an old tuk-tuk. He wants to change it. He wants to make it a solar-powered tuk-tuk. This is not easy. He does not know how to do it. He has many problems.

In the end, he finishes the tuk-tuk. The man travels 9,978 kilometres from India to Britain.

Difficult words: pollution (if there’s pollution somewhere, the place is dangerously dirty), clean (something clean does not pollute – make the area around dangerously dirty), vehicle (a thing like the car), tuk-tuk (a small car).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
