Seven very lucky people – level 1

13-04-2015 07:00

This news is from Koh Samui. Koh Samui is an island, and it is in Thailand. It is a popular holiday destination.

Something bad happens there. A car is at a car park. Somebody puts a bomb inside the car. The bomb explodes. It injures seven people, but they are lucky. It injures them only a little.

Experts search the car. They want to know more about it. They want to know who did this.

Difficult words: holiday destination (a place where people go on holiday), injure (to hurt), search (to look at something, to study it).

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