Goodbye Selfie Sticks – Level 2

02-11-2016 15:00

In 2015, many people bought the selfie stick. It was popular at the time because you could take pictures of yourself and something behind you, too. You could also take pictures without having to ask someone to help take your picture.

However, the era of selfie sticks may be coming to an end. Online searches for the device are down by 50%. People think that this is because once you buy a selfie stick, you do not need another one.

Some people think that the selfie sticks are annoying, so this is good news for them.

Difficult words: era (a time), search (what you search/look for on the Internet), device (a piece of technology), annoying (something annoying makes you feel uncomfortable).

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