“Very rude” Chinese in the UK – level 1
The Chinese President Xi Jingping visits the United Kingdom. The visit is successful.
However, the Queen talks to someone. This is a private conversation. Someone films it. They talk about the visit. The Queen says that the Chinese are “very rude”.
This comes just hours after another gaffe. Prime Minister David Cameron talks to the Queen. He says that Afghanistan and Nigeria are "fantastically corrupt".
Difficult words: rude (not nice), gaffe (when you say something by mistake that shocks people), corrupt (bad; money-stealing).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
