North Korea’s Rocket Test – level 1

06-11-2019 15:00

North Korea tests a new rocket. It is the third test for this rocket since August. This rocket can fly more than 200 miles. It can destroy everything. This week, one rocket falls into the sea near Japan.

Last month, the US meets North Korea. They speak about North Korea’s nuclear program. It is not a successful meeting. North Korea does not like the US’s ideas. North Korea warns the US that it must change its plan. The US has time only until the end of December.

Difficult words: destroy (to damage something so much that it is not possible to repair it), successful (with a good end), warn (to inform about a possible bad situation in the future).

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