North and South Korean families meet

03-11-2015 07:00

During the Korean War, some Korean families are separated. Some of the family members live in the north of Korea, and some members live in the south of Korea. They cannot meet each other. They cannot phone each other. They are completely separated.

Now, North and South Korea hold reunions. People can meet at the border. The reunion is very emotional. People can see each other after 60 years!

Difficult words: separate (to be in pieces), family member (somebody who is in a family), reunion (an event where people meet after a long time), border (a line between two countries).

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