The South Korean movie “Parasite” won the Oscar for best picture on Sunday, which means that it was the first non-English language movie to win the top prize.

It also was the first movie from South Korea to get a nomination at the Oscars. Before the Oscars, “Parasite” also won awards at the Cannes Film Festival, the Screen Actors Guild, and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

Director Bong Joon-ho said that the movie is “a continuation of all the Korean films that came before. It’s an extension of our history.” The movie is about class struggles between the rich and poor.

Difficult words: top (the best), extension (a continuation), class struggle (a situation when poor people try very hard to become rich).
