Shocking advertisement - level 1

Shocking advertisement - level 1

03-07-2014 15:00

Northern Ireland wants to protect its children. Too many children die because people drive too fast there. People show a shocking advertisement on TV.

It is a minute-long video. It starts in a classroom. The classroom is full of children. They go on a school trip. At the same time, a man gets in his car.

Then the children are in a park. They are playing. The man loses control of his car. He hits a wall. The car goes through the wall. The children are behind it. The car kills the children.

Difficult words: protect (make more safe), shocking (surprising or scary), advertisement (short video on TV which makes you buy something or think about something).

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

Can an advertisement like this change anything?
