Shootings in USA – level 1

22-08-2019 07:00

A mass shooting is when a person shoots many people. Mass shootings happen recently in the USA. Some countries are worried. They want to protect their citizens.

The countries send out warnings. The warnings warn people who are traveling to the USA. Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, Germany, Italy and Britain warn of shootings or terrorist attacks. Japan says that there can be a shooting anywhere in the USA. Japan says that the USA is a “gun society.” Venezuela and Uruguay also warn of racism.

Amnesty International says that places with many people can be dangerous. These are places like churches or malls.

Difficult words: citizen (a person who lives in a country), warning (something which says that you should be careful because something is dangerous), Amnesty International (an organization which tries to help people and make them safe).

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