Shocking advertisement - level 2
Northern Ireland wants to protect its children. Twenty-eight children died from dangers of speeding since 2000 there.
People show a shocking advertisement on TV. It is a minute-long video. It starts in a classroom full of children. They get ready for a school trip. Meanwhile, a man gets in his car. The children are playing in a park when the man loses control of his car. He crashes through a wall and crushes the children. The video ends with an empty classroom.
Difficult words: speeding (driving too fast), advertisement (short video on TV which makes you buy something or think about something), meanwhile (at the same time), crush (to smash).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Can an advertisement like this change anything?
