North and South Korea - level 2

North and South Korea - level 2

28-08-2015 15:00

North and South Korea are enemies. The situation between the two countries got worse after land mines wounded two South Korean soldiers along the border.

South Korea said that North Korea put the land mines there, but North Korea said that this was not true. Because of this, and other reasons as well, there are tensions between the countries. There might be war coming.

North Korea’s television showed young people who want to go to war and destroy South Korea. South Korean reservists put photos of their military uniforms on the Internet and said that they are ready to fight.

Difficult words: wound (to damage the body), tension (a stressful, difficult situation), reservist (a person who becomes a soldier when there’s war).

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