End of the one-child policy - level 1

End of the one-child policy - level 1

06-11-2015 15:00

This news is from China. Chinese parents can have only one child. This is called the “one-child policy”.

The policy started in 1979. It stopped around 400 million births. People with more children became in big trouble.

All this can change, however. The Chinese government plans to let people there have two children.

Difficult words: policy (a rule – a rule tells you what you can or cannot do), birth (when a baby is born), government (a group of people who are “bosses” of a country).

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