Boats Make Art – level 2

10-05-2021 07:00

Boats lined up across Lake Geneva, Switzerland, for an art project. They lined up at the 59 kilometer border between France and Switzerland.

The project leader said that the project showed the nonsense of the border because “no one wants to draw a line” on water.

Different types of boats including yachts were in the event. There were more than 250 boats that participated.

Difficult words: line up (to form a line), nonsense (something which does not make sense), yacht (a large boat where people can live).

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