Some cars are not safe - level 1
People from the USA do a test. They test cars. This test has a name of “crash test.”
A car drives 40 miles per hour (64 kilometres per hour). It hits a five-foot (1.5 metre) wall. People watch what happens. The results are not good.
Half of the cars are not safe. A quarter of the crashes finish badly. But there is a safe car. It is the Honda Civic. Its results are good.
Difficult words: crash (moment when something hits another thing), result (what the test tells us in the end), quarter (1/4 or 25%).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
