Indian couple want a grandchild – level 2

23-05-2022 07:00

A retired Indian couple want to have a grandchild, and they are suing their son and his wife.

The couple said that they looked after their son all of his life, and then they spent all their savings on his education. Their son studied to be a pilot, and the couple paid $45,000 for pilot training in the US.

The man married six years ago, but he followed his career as a pilot. He didn’t start a family.

The couple wanted compensation for their help for their son. They asked their son to have a child within one year, or they demand $675,000.

Difficult words: sue (to take legal action against somebody), career (a job which someone does for some time), compensation (a payment for loss, injury, and so on).

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