Cat Picks Winner – level 1

14-06-2018 07:00

The 2018 World Cup is here. The first match is between Russia and Saudi Arabia. People want to know who will win.

They ask a cat for help. His name is Achilles. People give the cat two plates with food. One plate has the Russian flag. The other plate has the Saudi flag.

The cat takes his time. In the end, he chooses Russia. People then dress him into the Russian national football team kit.

Difficult words: will (in the future), take time (spend a long time), kit (clothes).

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