North and South Korea – level 1

28-08-2015 15:00

Two South Korean soldiers are at the border with North Korea. A land mine wounds them. This is a problem. North and South Korea are not friends. They do not like each other. Now, the situation is even worse.

North Korean TV shows young people. They want to fight. They want to destroy South Korea. South Korean soldiers are ready to fight. Maybe, war is coming.

Difficult words: border (a line where one country start and another country ends), land mine (a bomb which in the ground), wound (to hurt, to break).

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

What do you think about this situation between North and South Korea?
