New Ways of Business – level 1

25-03-2020 15:00

It is a difficult time for many people and businesses. Officials are afraid of coronavirus. They cancel public events and meetings. Many businesses lose money. People do not go to theaters, concerts and cinemas.

People who work in theaters find new ways to make money. They start to work online. They livestream the shows. People want to help theaters. People buy many tickets. Sometimes people buy more tickets for online shows than for real shows in the theater.

The current situation brings new ways of business. People have new ideas. They must be active and creative. It can be good for the future of their business.

Difficult words: public event (a thing that happens and that people can attend), livestream (to play live on the Internet), creative (when somebody has interesting new ideas).

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