Cats at G20 – level 1

20-11-2015 15:00

G20 is an important event. World leaders meet at this event. The event takes place every year.

This year, something funny happens. Three cats walk on the stage. Who owns these cats? Maybe, they are one of the leader’s pets. We do not know. They cannot be David Cameron’s, Vladimir Putin’s or Barack Obama’s – those leaders all have dogs.

Difficult words: leader (a boss), take place (to happen), stage (the area for somebody who is speaking).

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

What do you think about the cats at the G20 event?
