ABBA sang a song in 1974. The band won a big prize. That was 40 years ago. One half of ABBA celebrates the anniversary now.

A lot of people know ABBA. The members of ABBA are famous for their hits. However, it is not fast to make a hit. It takes some time. ABBA did not have a hit after hit after hit.

Bjorn and Frida are two members of ABBA. They celebrate. People sing Happy Birthday for them.

Difficult words: celebrate (to have a good time), anniversary (date on which something special happened), member (person in a group), hit (popular song).

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