Big Diamond in Sierra Leone – level 2

26-03-2019 15:00

A pastor in Sierra Leone found a 706-carat (141 grams) diamond. It is the largest diamond found in Sierra Leone in over 40 years.

The pastor decided to give it to the government. He hopes that it will help the West African country.

The President of Sierra Leone said that the diamond was going to be sold publicly. Everybody will know the price and the buyer.

Difficult words: pastor (a priest; a man of a church), government (the ‘bosses’ of a country).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
