Queen Elizabeth visits Germany - level 1

Queen Elizabeth visits Germany - level 1

29-06-2015 15:00

Queen Elizabeth II often meets with presidents and prime ministers. It is normal for her.

She is on a trip in Germany. There she meets someone or something special. She meets a robot!

People want to make the robot bow, but it cannot. It could fall over. Instead, the robot waves to the queen.

Later, the queen is shown a painting. It is a painting of her. She is young and she sits on a pony. Her father is in the picture too, but she does not recognise him.

Difficult words: bow (to move your body down to show respect to somebody special), recognise (to know who somebody is).

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

What do you think about the queen and the robot?
