People Protest against Masks – level 1

23-09-2020 15:00

The whole world is fighting with the coronavirus. In many countries, people must wear masks on their faces. Masks help stop the movement of the coronavirus.

However, some people do not like to wear the masks. They say that the masks do not help stop the coronavirus.

A group of people walk through a store in Florida, USA. They do not wear masks. They shout at other people. They ask other people to take off their masks. They do it to protest against the government rules. Other people are confused. They do not understand the situation.

The US president asks people to wear face masks. However, he has another opinion in the past. He refuses to wear a mask during a meeting with journalists. Now, he understands that masks are important.

Difficult words: rule (what people must do), confused (when somebody does not understand what is happening), refuse (to say no).

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