Chaplin's World in Switzerland – level 1
Charlie Chaplin is born in London. He has a wife and eight children. They live in the USA. In the 1950s, they must leave. It is the McCarthy era and people say that he likes communism.
They all go to Switzerland. Chaplin lives there for 25 years. He dies on Christmas Day in 1977. He is 88.
People plan a museum. It takes them 15 years. Finally, the museum opens. Its name is “Chaplin’s World”.
The museum is Chaplin’s old home. The museum shows the life and work of Charlie Chaplin. There are images and 30 wax figures. Two of the wax figures are Albert Einstein and Michael Jackson.
Difficult words: era (an age, a time), communism (a type of government that is different than the American government), wax figure (a model of a person; wax is the material of the model).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
