Driving in Saudi Arabia – level 1

26-06-2018 07:00

Women in Saudi Arabia were not allowed to drive. Saudi Arabia was the only country with a law like this. The law ends this Sunday. Now women can drive in Saudi Arabia. They do not need a driver. They can go to work.

Many people think that this is a good thing. This can help the economy too.

Difficult words: were (past of ‘are’), to be allowed to (if you are allowed to do something, nobody stops you from doing it), was (past of ‘is’).

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