Constitution Day in Spain – level 1

12-12-2018 15:00

December 6th is Constitution Day in Spain. This year, the Spanish constitution is 40 years old. In 1978, there was a referendum. Over 90% of the people wanted the constitution.

Now, some people do not want the constitution. They protest. They think that it is not good for working class people.

Difficult words: Constitution (a document that tells about the laws and ideas of a country), was (past of ‘is’), referendum (when people can say if they want something to happen in their country), working class people (people who work but do not have a lot of money).

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