Love Locks in Paris - Level 2

Love Locks in Paris - Level 2

10-06-2015 15:00

People put locks on an 18th century Parisian bridge. They did this to profess their love. However, there were so many locks that they were too heavy for the bridge. Even though visitors liked the locks, Paris leaders had to save the bridge. They took the panels with the locks off the bridge.

Some visitors were not happy about this because they didn’t want the locks to be thrown away. Others wanted to add more locks. However, there are still ten other bridges in Paris where people can continue this tradition.

Difficult words: profess (to tell many people), panel (a piece of a structure), tradition (when people do something again and again).

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

What should happen to the locks?
