A Theme Park Is Changing – level 1

13-11-2020 15:00

A popular theme park is in Hong Kong. Many people visit the park every year. But 2020 is a different year. The park must close for many months. The reason is the coronavirus.

The park opens again in September. But not as many people can visit it as before. Another problem is tourism. People cannot travel to Hong Kong. It means that tourists do not visit the park.

The owners must find ways to make the park interesting for local people. They start yoga classes in an aquarium. People can enjoy camping in the park, too. Many trees and green areas are in the park. It is a big advantage. The owners believe that they can attract more people in the future.

Difficult words: owner (a person who has something and it belongs to him), yoga (a type of exercise that has stretches and balance), advantage (something that makes a situation better or easier), attract (to make someone come to a place because it is interesting for him).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
