Disneyland in China – level 2

Disneyland in China – level 2

22-06-2016 07:00

Disney opened its first theme park in mainland China. Tens of thousands of fans came to the theme park after a grand opening ceremony.

The park is Disney’s largest overseas investment at 5.5 billion dollars. It is a bet at China’s middle class and growing domestic tourism. Around 330 million people within a 3-hour radius of Shanghai will be able to afford to come to the park.

China is continuing to make itself more attractive to investment from around the world. That is in turn mutually beneficial to America.

Difficult words: bet at (think something will turn out the way you want it to), domestic (national), mutually beneficial (beneficial – helpful for both sides).

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