30-08-2023 15:00

In France, there was a terror attack. It happened in November 2015. 130 people died. Now, French authorities make a video. The video is about terror attacks. The video shows you what to do when a terror attack happens.

It tells you to run away, if you can. Also, it tells you to help other people. The video shows you how. You tell other people about the attack. If you cannot run away, you hide.

Difficult words: was (past tense of “is”), authorities (the people who run a place), hide to (go somewhere where you are safe).

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

What suggestions does the video give with regard to how to protect yourself when you cannot run away from a terror attack?
