EU kills the Land Rover Defender - level 1

EU kills the Land Rover Defender - level 1

01-02-2016 15:00

The Land Rover Defender is a car. It is a 4 by 4 car. It is a British icon. People make it for 67 years.

Now, the production must stop. The EU makes it stop. The car is not eco-friendly.

Some people are sad. They like the car very much. Workers at the factory meet. They say “goodbye” to the car.

People are working on a new car. It will be the new Land Rover Defender.

Difficult words: icon (a symbol, something that the British people like), production (the making of the car), eco-friendly (nice to nature).

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