Migrants on Kos - level 1

Migrants on Kos - level 1

18-08-2015 07:00

Some people are not happy in their countries. There is war or poverty in their countries. They want to go to Europe.

There are hundreds of migrants on Kos. Kos is a Greek island.

The migrants are at a stadium. They have no food at the stadium. There is also no protection from the sun. The migrants fight with the police. We do not know why they start fighting.

The migrants must register to go to new countries. However, they say that this takes too long.

Difficult words: poverty (there is poverty if people are poor – they have no money), migrant (a person who is moving from one country to another), register (to get an official paper).

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