British royal super-fan – level 1

20-04-2015 07:00

Prince William has a wife. Her name is Kate. She is pregnant. Her baby is coming soon.

This news is about a fan. The fan has a collection. A collection is a group of similar things. The things in her collection have pictures of the royal family on them.

The fan is very happy about the baby. She can’t wait! She wants to know if it’s a boy or a girl.

Difficult words: pregnant (to have a baby inside the body), similar (similar things are only a little different), royal family (the family of a king or queen).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
