Roof falls down - level 1

Here is some news from Vietnam. People play badminton at the Badminton Open. It takes place at a stadium.

There are fans at the stadium. They see that there is something wrong with the roof. They tell the players. The players leave the courts.

The roof falls down. Luckily, everyone is already gone. Everyone is fine. The stadium is closed. People repair it.

Difficult words: take place (happen), roof (it is at the top of a building), court (area for playing badminton and tennis).

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