Tristan da Cunha - level 2
Tristan da Cunha is a British territory. It is also the loneliest human colony on Earth with only 265 residents. The island is situated midway between South Africa and South America.
In the 1960s, residents to be evacuated to England when the volcano on the island erupted. When the island was safe again, the people returned. However, around 3/4 of the people preferred England to the lonely island.
The residents of the island are looking for a farming advisor who could help them increase their food production. So if you like farming and you like being alone, this could be the job for you!
Difficult words: resident (a person who resides – lives somewhere), advisor (a person who gives advice – says what is or isn’t good to do), increase (to make more).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
