"The Jungle” camp in Calais - level 1

"The Jungle” camp in Calais - level 1

25-02-2016 15:00

This news is about the migrant camp “the Jungle”. This camp is in Calais, France. Many migrants live in the camp. It is their home. They have churches, schools and mosques.

The French government wants to bulldoze the camp. People must leave. Some people do not like this. They are worried. They don’t want chaos. Many children have no parents. People worry about the children, too.

The migrants must move to live in big white boxes. The boxes do not look very big. There might not be enough space.

Difficult words: migrant (a person who moves from one country to another), government (the leaders of a country), chaos (when many things happen at one time), bulldoze (to knock down, to pull down, to destroy).

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

What do you think about this situation for the migrants and for France?
