Cats at G20 – level 2

20-11-2015 15:00

The leaders of the world gathered at this year’s G20 summit, and something funny happened before the event started. Three cats walked on the stage.

Maybe the cats belonged to one of the present leaders. We know that it couldn’t be David Cameron, Vladimir Putin or Barack Obama – they all have dogs.

We will probably never know, but people escorted the cats off the stage before the event started.

Difficult words: gather (to come together), summit (an important meeting), escort (when someone walks with you to make you leave somewhere).

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?
