Drones in the USA – level 1

01-05-2019 15:00

This news is about drones. Drones are very small planes. They can move things. Some companies want to make money with drones. Drones can deliver things.

Alphabet is a company. It tests drones in Australia. It does more than 70,000 test flights, and makes more than 3,000 deliveries.

The American government says that the company can use the drones in the USA. The company is now starting tests in Virginia (an American state).

Difficult words: company (a business), deliver (move to you after you buy it on the Internet, a catalogue or on the phone), government (the leaders/‘bosses’ of a country).

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