Lots of People in Venice – level 2

02-05-2018 07:00

The narrow streets of Venice often become impassable when there are too many tourists. At the start of this month’s four-day holiday weekend, Venice installed gates on two of its bridges.

This way, the police had control over the number of people entering the city, but they never closed the gates.

There are many tourists in Venice, but the local population is, in fact, dwindling.

Difficult words: impassable (not able to be passed – moved through), gate (a big door), dwindling (falling, getting smaller and smaller).

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