Paintball in Afghanistan – level 1

03-10-2014 07:00

There were wars in Afghanistan. People there are tired of the wars. They want to live happily. However, they have bad memories from these wars.

There is something which can help them. It is the game of paintball. In this game, players use paintball guns. The guns shoot colours. This is a fun game. You shoot, but nobody dies. It is a friendly game.

There are new paintball clubs in Kabul. Teenagers there like the game. It is getting more and more popular.

Difficult words: were (past of be), tired of (not like or want something).

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

Do you think the paintball will help the people?
