Train at Your Door – level 1

02-03-2023 15:00

Some people live near a train station. They can travel to work. It is good for them. But it is not good when the train is very close. There is a city in Vietnam. It has a very narrow street. In the street, there is a way for trains to pass.

Trains go there every day. The trains go very near the houses. This is not good for the people. People must be careful when they go home because the trains can hit them. There were accidents there in the past.

Difficult words: narrow (not wide), be careful (look around).

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

What do you think would happen if the trains stopped going to the city?
