Tristan da Cunha - level 1

28-01-2016 15:00

Tristan da Cunha is an island. It is between South Africa and South America. Only 265 people live there. They are British.

There is a volcano on the island. In the 1960s, it erupted. People had to leave.

They went to England. Many of them liked England. But they went back to Tristan da Cunha.

People at this island want to produce more food. They need help. They are looking for good farmers. If you are a good farmer, this can be the job for you!

Difficult words: erupt (to explode), had to (past of “have to” = “must”), produce (to make).

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