Breastfeeding experiment – level 1

08-08-2023 15:00

This happens in London. A woman is on a train. She is a mother. She has her baby with her. She breastfeeds her baby. A man sees this. He does not like it. He starts to talk to the woman. He tells her to stop. He is loud and unpleasant.

Other people see this situation. One man wants to help the woman. He sits between the other man and the woman.

Soon, a person with a camera comes. The person tells everyone that the situation is an experiment.

Difficult words: breastfeed (when a woman gives a baby milk from her breast), unpleasant (not nice), experiment (a situation which can give you information about something).

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

What do you think could have been done differently to defuse this situation sooner?
