Angry Man – level 1

29-07-2020 07:00

A man in Prostejov, Czech Republic, invites his ex-girlfriend for lunch. The woman says no to him. The 52-year-old man gets angry. The man gets in his car. He drives to an apartment building. His ex-girlfriend lives there.

The man drives into the front doors. He destroys the front doors. He climbs out of his car. He goes away.

Later, police find the man in a pub nearby. The man is drunk. The police say that the man has problems in the past. The man is not allowed to drive. However, he still drives a car.

The man can stay up to three years in prison.

Difficult words: ex-girlfriend (someone’s girlfriend in the past but not anymore), apartment building (a building with many apartments where people live), destroy (to break into many pieces), drunk (when someone drinks too much alcohol and he cannot control what he is doing).

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