American Tourist Killed – level 1

28-11-2018 07:00

This news is from the Sentinelese island. It is between India and Myanmar. It is isolated. The people there are the Sentinelese. They are isolated.  This makes them afraid of outsiders. They are aggressive.

Also, they are not used to our sicknesses. An outsider can make them sick easily. This is why people cannot simply visit this island. India controls this.

However, an American tourist goes there. The Sentinelese kill him.

Difficult words: isolated (when a place or a people are far away from other places or people), aggressive (violent and ready to fight), outsider (a person who is not part of a group).

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