Sinkhole in Japan – level 1
This news is from Japan. A sinkhole opens. It destroys a big intersection. The city apologises for the sinkhole. The sinkhole happens because people build a new subway.
Water is filling up the sinkhole. People must work fast. They fix the problem. Everything is fine in a week.
One hundred shops lose money because of the sinkhole. Japan gives them money for the trouble.
Difficult words: sinkhole (a hole in the ground that comes up to the top of the ground), intersection (the place where two or more roads meet), apologise (say “sorry”).
