British Prime Minister – level 2

02-08-2019 07:00

Theresa May stepped down as UK’s prime minister, and Boris Johnson became the new prime minister. Last Wednesday on July 24th, he gave his first speech.

He thanked Theresa May for her service, and he spoke to Brexit naysayers. He said that Britain is going to leave the EU on October 31st and that there is going to be a new Brexit deal. He said that Britain is going to build a new partnership with Europe, and this partnership will stand on free trade and mutual help.

Johnson also promised to make hospitals better, put more police in the streets, and make schools great.

Difficult words: naysayer (a person who says nay – no to something), partnership (when you are partners with somebody), mutual (doing something together).

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