New Mall Falls Down – level 1

17-07-2018 07:00

There is a new shopping centre in Mexico City. Some people do not like it. They say that it takes up open space.

There are problems with the centre. It is not built well. The ground moves under it. On Thursday, there is an incident. The building is not stable. People must leave.

Later, they are outside. They watch it fall down. Only a part of the centre falls down. It is still shocking.

Difficult words: open space (a natural area within a city), incident (a situation which is not good), stable (something stable does not fall down easily).

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