Migrants try to board a ferry - level 2

09-09-2014 07:00

Migrants tried to board a ferry in the French port of Calais. A camera filmed the moment. It showed more than a hundred people running towards the ferry. The ferry was headed to the UK.

The crew stopped the migrants on the ferry. The crew raised the access ramp and shot the fire hose in the migrants’ direction.

Difficult words: head (go somewhere), crew (group of people who work on a ship), shoot the fire hose (shoot water out of a very big hose).

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

Do you consider immigration a problem?
