Scary Clowns – level 1

Scary Clowns – level 1

14-10-2016 15:00

There is a new trend. People are dressing up as clowns. They are dressing up not as funny clowns but as scary clowns. They scare people. This is happening in the USA, UK and Australia.

A student dresses up as a clown. He has a real chainsaw. He walks around with it. Police arrest him.

Some people are worried about this trend. It is becoming more popular. Somebody can get really scared. Something can go wrong.

Difficult words: trend (something that people copy because they like it), chainsaw (a dangerous thing for cutting trees), arrest (take to the police station).
