Man on Sydney Opera House - level 1

Man on Sydney Opera House - level 1

20-05-2014 15:00

A man climbs onto the Sydney Opera House. We don’t know why he does it. People think that he is protesting something.

He is on the building for an hour. People watch him. They take pictures of him. Two officers talk to the man. They tell him to go down with them. People clap when the man comes down.

Difficult words: climb (get up), protest (to say to people that you don’t like something), clap (use their hands to make a sound to show they are happy).

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