Anger in France – level 1

18-07-2016 07:00

This news is from France. There was an attack on people in the town of Nice. People put down flowers and candles for the people who are dead. People out in the streets are scared and angry.

One lady says that people think that these attacks always happen in other places. But when the attack happens in your home, it touches you directly.

Another lady is angry. She says that people need more protection from these attacks. People feel nervous. They don’t know when these attacks will end.

Difficult words: scared (with fear), happen (are), directly (with nothing between).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
