Boy Hits a Painting – level 1

08-07-2022 15:00

In Taipei, there is an exhibition. It is an exhibition of paintings. Many paintings are by Leonardo da Vinci.

A boy is at the exhibition. He is next to a painting. He is listening to his teacher. He does not look where he’s going. He loses his balance. He pushes a hole in the painting. A camera films this. The painting is worth $1.5 million.

The boy did not want to do this. He is not in trouble. People can fix the painting.

Difficult words: exhibition (an event where you can see famous artwork), lose balance (when you fall over), hole (a little space).

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

What do you think about the accident with the painting?
