“Very rude” Chinese in the UK – level 2
The Chinese President Xi Jingping visited the United Kingdom. People called the visit a great boost to UK-China relations, but later, people heard the Queen saying that the Chinese officials were “very rude”.
Her comments came just hours after Prime Minister David Cameron told the Queen that Afghanistan and Nigeria were "fantastically corrupt".
Buckingham Palace said that it does not comment on the Queen's private conversations, but added that the Chinese state visit was extremely successful.
Difficult words: boost (an improvement, something that helps), official (a member of the government), add (to do something extra).
