Great skatepark in Bolivia - level 1

Great skatepark in Bolivia - level 1

03-09-2014 15:00

A group builds a skatepark in Bolivia. 100 people build it. These people are not paid. They do it for fun. They are volunteers. It takes them only 30 days to build the skatepark.

The volunteers come from 17 different countries. They work together on the park’s design. They share ideas. The park’s design is a mix of these ideas. For example, the Japanese build a ramp. The ramp looks like Mount Fuji.

This skatepark is in the mountains. When you skate, you can see the Andes. It is very beautiful.

Difficult words: volunteer (person who works but does not get any money for it), share (tell to each other), ramp (skatepark’s small “hill”).

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