New Ways of Business – level 2

25-03-2020 15:00

Officials are afraid of coronavirus, and they cancel all public events. Theaters, cinemas and concert venues are closing down. People who work in the business try to continue their work.

Some people are raising money to support theaters and their workers. Owners of theaters are coming up with new ideas, and they start to livestream their shows. Sometimes the live shows are very successful, and theaters sell more tickets than the actual theater capacity.

Other small businesses can work online too. For example, yoga instructors can offer free online classes, and when they get enough customers, they can start a new way of business.

Difficult words: venue (the place where an event happens), livestream (to send out live over the Internet), theater capacity (the number of people who can fit in the place at the same time).

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