Beer in Plastic Bags – level 1

13-06-2018 07:00

Qingdao City is in the east of China. People there buy beer in plastic bags. It is a local custom. Almost every street shop sells beer like this.

People drink the beer from the bag with a straw. You can also make a hole in the bag and use a glass.

Difficult words: local custom (something which happens a lot in a specific place), straw (a skinny tube that you use to drink something from a bottle or a cup), hole (a small space in something).

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