People Buy Bad Meat – level 1

03-09-2018 07:00

Venezuela has big problems. The economic situation there is very bad. One city has no electricity for months. People cannot use their fridges. They cannot keep their food cold and fresh. Their meat goes bad.

Some people buy bad meat anyway. One shopper buys the meat. He plans to wash it with vinegar and lemon.

Difficult words: economic (how much money people have, what shops have, etc.), fridge (a machine which keeps your food cold), anyway (if you do something anyway, you do it even though it is a bad idea).

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