This news is about three astronauts. One is British, one is American and one is Russian.

They are training. They will go to the International Space Station. They will go there in a few weeks. The mission will be 7 months long.

The British astronaut will be the first British astronaut on the International Space Station.

Some astronauts are already on the International Space Station. They celebrate Thanksgiving. They eat turkey.

Difficult words: train (practise, get ready for something), will (this means “in the future”), celebrate (have fun).

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