Strange Village in Argentina – level 1

30-08-2022 15:00

This news is about a village. This village is in Argentina. It is by a saltwater lake. One day, something bad happens. The water rises. People must leave the village. The water covers the village. It is under water for 30 years.

Now, the water evaporates. You can visit the village again. It looks very strange.

Difficult words: rise (to go up), evaporate (to go away; to change to vapour – gas), strange (not normal).

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

Would you like to visit the village?
