Selfie Damages Art – level 1

21-02-2022 15:00

A woman is at an art show in Russia. She wants to take a selfie. She leans against a wall display.

When she leans, the wall falls over. It falls on top of paintings. The paintings are by two important Spanish artists. The paintings cost a lot of money. The fall breaks them.

Difficult words: lean (stand at an angle, do not stand straight), wall display (a light wall on which people put pictures for an art show).

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