Chinese Lunar New Year - level 1
People celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year. This year is the Year of the Goat. The Chinese live in Thailand, also.
Thousands of people come to Bangkok’s Chinatown. All of them celebrate. There is a lot of food. People watch traditional dance performances from Beijing.
The Lunar New Year is not a holiday in Thailand. However, many Chinese do not work on this day. They want to be with their families.
Difficult words: celebrate (to have fun), traditional (typical for a country), dance performance (a situation when some people dance and other people watch).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
What is this year going to be like for you? :-)
