Problems with selfie sticks in South Korea - level 2
Taking a selfie is very popular these days. Some people like to use a selfie stick. It is a stick on which you fix your phone, so will take a better picture of you.
The phone and the stick communicate wirelessly. The South Korean government thinks that this can cause problems with radio frequencies. It made using unregistered selfie sticks illegal. Some people say that a selfie stick cannot interfere with a radio signal, but if you sell an unregistered selfie stick, you must pay up to £17,000 ($26,607), or even go to prison.
Difficult words: selfie (a picture of you which is also taken by you), wirelessly (without wire which is a line between two things), interfere (cause problems).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
