Dangerous Way for Chinese Children – level 1

31-01-2023 15:00

A group of Chinese children from one village have a dangerous way home from school. If they want to go home, they must go over a big mountain.

The children go only up and up twenty meters. It is very dangerous. When they go up, they have to carry their bags and other things, too. One dog uses this way, also.

The parents are always very happy when they see their children again. The parents want a better way to their village. They also believe that school is very important for their children.

Difficult words: dangerous (not safe), important (needed for life).

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