Gold in a Tank – level 1

20-07-2021 15:00

A man buys a tank on the internet. He pays £30,000. He and his mechanic repair the tank. They think that there are guns inside it. They open it. They find gold. They find £2 million in gold inside.

The man calls the police. The police take the gold away for study.

People think that Iraqi soldiers steal the gold when they attack Kuwait in 1990.

Difficult words: repair (when you fix something because it does not work), steal (take without asking).

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