Goodbye Selfie Sticks – Level 1

02-11-2016 15:00

In 2015, a lot of people buy the selfie stick. It helps you take pictures. You can take pictures of yourself or your group. You can do this by yourself. You do not need other people’s help. You can also get pictures of the things behind you.

The selfie stick is getting less popular. People buy it less. Also, some people do not like selfie sticks. They think that they are annoying.

Difficult words: need (if you need something, it is very good to have it), less (when something goes down), annoying (annoying things make you feel bad).

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