Koreas Connect a Little – level 2

02-01-2019 07:00

There was a ceremony in which South and North Korean roads and railways were connected.

The event was symbolic, but it is another step toward peace. South Korea believes that this shows that the countries are willing to work together on rail and road modernisation.

North Korea is under international sanctions over its nuclear programme. South Korea said that the construction will go on while North Korea is closely watched.

Difficult words: connect (join, become one), be willing to do something (when you are willing to do something, you are not very happy about doing it but you do it anyway), sanctions (a type of punishment that a country can do to another country).

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