Cat Picks Winner – level 2

14-06-2018 07:00

Saudi Arabia will compete with Russia in the first match of the 2018 World Cup, and people wanted to predict the outcome of the match, so they asked a cat for help.

His name is Achilles and people gave him two plates of cat food. On one plate was a flag of Russia and on the other plate was a flag of Saudi Arabia. Achilles took his time but chose Russia. People then put him into the Russian national football team kit.

Difficult words: predict (try to say what will happen in the future), outcome (the result, the end), kit (clothes).

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