Refugees in Germany - level 1

02-09-2015 07:00

There are many refugees in Germany. This year, there will be 800,000 refugees. This causes problems.

Some people attack the refugees. There are 150 attacks in 6 months.

Some people fight outside a refugee centre. This refugee centre is in Dresden. Police want to stop it. They use tear gas and pepper spray.

Difficult words: refugee (a person who must leave his or her country because of something bad like war), cause (to make), tear gas (gas which hurts your eyes).

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