Parliament in Taiwan - level 1

Parliament in Taiwan - level 1

15-08-2013 14:00

There is an interesting situation in Taiwan. There are two groups of leaders there. They want different things.

One group wants to build a power plant. The second group does not. It is a problem. The groups start to fight. It happens in the parliament.

There are people outside the parliament. They think something about the power plant, too. They say it but they don't fight.

Difficult words: leaders (bosses), power plant (building which makes electricity), parliament (big room where leaders talk).

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