Fake Fans – level 1

11-05-2020 15:00

The baseball league starts in South Korea. It starts later than is usual. The coronavirus makes the start of the league happen later. Officials make hard rules.

Now, it seems that the situation gets better; however, sports fans cannot come to stadiums. Fans are unhappy. They want to watch their favorite teams play. Some fans come to stadiums. They watch the games through the fence.

Organizers want to make fans happy during the first game. They set up a big board at the stadiums. Fans can watch the game online. Fans yell for their teams.

Organizers make fake fans at the stadium. They put pictures of the fans on the seats. The fake fans wear masks.

It is good for people who live near the stadium. There is no noise during the game.

Difficult words: league (a formal team), stadium (a place where people play a sport), fake (not real).

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