People go to Malta - level 1
There is a ship with people in it near Malta. The ship has problems and it needs help. There is more and more water coming in the ship. It is sinking.
Help comes. The Maltese army saves people on the ship--88 men, 20 women and 4 children. They are all from Africa. They want to go to Malta.
However, most of them don't stop at Malta. They go on to Continental Europe. Life is better for them there.
Difficult words: sink (get under water), continental (not an island but big land).
