Dangerous Way for Chinese Children – level 2

31-01-2023 15:00

A group of children from one village in China face a dangerous journey home from school. If they want to get home, the children have to climb over a big mountain.

The children climb about twenty metres on the ladders to the top of the mountain. They carry their bags and other things, too. A dog also uses the ladders.

Parents are always very happy when they see their children again. The parents want a better way to get into their village. They also believe that a better future lies in their children’s education.

Difficult words: face (deal with), ladder (thing for climbing made of wood or metal).

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

How does the group of children make it to the top of the mountain?
