Refugees Leave Calais – level 2

Refugees Leave Calais – level 2

28-10-2016 07:00

The mass exodus of refugees from the jungle camp in Calais is underway. More than 1,500 people have left so far, most of them willingly.

The refugees are going to different parts of France, which are going to be home to them. Each refugee has a wristband, which said where they are going, and a map of France.

The clean-up of the camp has begun, but another 5,500 people must leave before the bulldozers can come in.

Difficult words: exodus (a mass leaving of people), refugee (a person who left his or her country because of danger), willingly (if you do something willingly, you want to do it).
