Walkway in Spain reopens – level 1

03-04-2015 07:00

Caminito del Rey was a walkway. It was in Spain. It was on a rock wall. It was three feet wide (0.9 metres). It was 100 feet (30 metres) above the ground.

This pathway was not safe. Five people fell and died. People closed the pathway. They closed it in 2001.

People made the pathway better. It took them four years. The pathway opened on March 28th. It is safe now. You can visit it.

Difficult words: was (past of “is”), fell (past of “to fall”), made (past of “to make”).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
