South Koreans eat Russian crab – level 1

13-04-2022 15:00

Russia attacks Ukraine in February. Some countries do not buy things from Russia. South Korea still buys things from Russia.

Russian things are cheaper. In the past, Russian crabs and lobster are very expensive and rare. Now, people can buy them in supermarkets. The number of visitors of seafood markets doubles.

Some people don’t care about the war. They buy Russian seafood. Right now it is cheap. Many people don’t buy it. They say that it is wrong. They say that the government must not buy things from Russia.

Difficult words: lobster (a large animal which has a hard shell and eight legs), rare (when there is very little of something), double (to become twice as much or many).

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