Indian couple want a grandchild – level 1

23-05-2022 07:00

An Indian couple are suing their son and his wife. They want to have a grandchild. The couple look after their son all his life.

The man wants to be a pilot. The couple pay for pilot education in the US. It costs $45,000. The man gets married six years ago. He cares only about his work. He doesn’t want to start a family.

His parents are unhappy. They spend all their money on him. They say that their son doesn’t care about them.

The couple say that their son must have a child within one year. If not, they want $675,000. They say that they give their son all they have. The money is compensation for them.

Difficult words: couple (two people who are married, or they are partners), sue (to go to court to decide about a problem or difficult situation), compensation (money for someone who gets hurt, or he goes through a difficult situation).

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