Very Expensive Bottle – level 1

10-01-2018 15:00

This news is about a robbery. Someone steals a very expensive bottle of vodka. The person steals it from a bar in Denmark.

The bottle is worth $1.3 million. People say that it is made from 3 kilogrammes of gold and 3 kilogrammes of silver. There are some diamonds on it, too.

The bottle is not insured. The bar is not the owner of the bottle. Someone borrowed it from a Russian businessman.

Difficult words: robbery (when something is taken), steal (take something which is not yours), insured (if something is stolen and it is insured, an insurance company can give you some money for it), owner (a person who owns – has something).

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