Paintball in Afghanistan - level 2

Paintball in Afghanistan - level 2

03-10-2014 07:00

People fight in Afghanistan a lot recently. People there are tired of conflict and violence in their country. One man opened a paintball club to help people ease their pain.

The aim of the game is to take the flag of the other team. You, of course, use the paintball guns, but there is no killing or suffering. It is a friendly game, and it brings people together and helps them.

Paintball centres have sprung up in Kabul recently, and they are getting popular among the teenagers.

Difficult words: ease (make less), aim (goal), spring up (appear/be opened).

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

Do you think the paintball will help the people?
