New app helps buskers – level 1

18-12-2015 15:00

Some countries are becoming cashless. Britain is one of them. Ten per cent of people in Britain have no cash in their pockets.

This is a problem for buskers. Luckily, there is a new app. You can give money to buskers with the app. The app is called “Busk”.

Difficult words: cashless (without cash – physical money), per cent (an amount), busker (an artist in the street).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Will you use Busk?
