Fireworks in Tultepec – level 1

29-08-2018 07:00

The country of Mexico is divided into states. The State of Mexico is one of them. In the first half of 2018, 40 people die in accidents with fireworks.

One city is known for its frequent explosions. It is the city of Tultepec. People are not even shocked when somebody dies because of fireworks there.

These people, however, are proud of their fireworks. They make them. They say that it is a type of art.

Difficult words: be divided (have parts), frequent (something frequent happens often).

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