New Mall Falls Down – level 2

17-07-2018 07:00

In Mexico City, there is a new shopping mall, but there are problems with it. First, some people do not want it there because they are worried about the loss of open space.

People built the mall and opened it, but then there were more problems. The ground under the building moved and last Thursday, there were structural problems. People from the mall and a nearby highway had to evacuate. Later, they were shocked to see part of the building fall down.

Difficult words: mall (a centre), loss (losing something), structural (about the structure of a building).

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