Money in Streets – level 1

07-12-2020 07:00

A gang of about 30 men takes control over a city in Brazil. They come to the city after midnight. They block the streets. They do not want police to come.

The men come in expensive cars. They rob a bank. They blow it up. Then they move to the streets of the city. They break cars. They start to shoot. The situation is very dangerous. The mayor of the city asks people to stay in their homes.

The men leave the city about two hours later. They litter the streets with lots of money. Some people see it. They run outside. They quickly take the money.

Difficult words: gang (an organized group of criminals), blow up (to make something explode), litter (to leave many things lying around a place).

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