USA–Seoul Army – level 1

14-08-2019 07:00

North Korea has nuclear weapons. The USA wants North Korea to get rid of them.

The two countries are talking about this. South Korea and the USA are allies. Every year, their armies train together. However, North Korea and South Korea are enemies.

The USA wants to show North Korea that things are getting better. The USA says that its army is not going to train with the South Korean army. Later, the USA says that the two armies are going to train together. However, the trainings are going to be small.

In the end, the USA and South Korea are going to train together. North Korea is not happy about this.

Difficult words: get rid (put away, throw away), allies (“friends”), enemies (the opposite of “friends”), going to (in the future).

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