Daylight Saving Time – level 1

03-04-2019 15:00

In Europe, people have summer time. In March, they move their clocks forward. In October, they move them back.

Some people say that the summer time saves energy. The European commission says that the savings are small. The European Parliament takes a vote. It votes to cancel the summer time by 2021. EU countries now can talk about it.

Difficult words: European commission (an important organisation of the EU), take a vote (vote – say if you want or do not want something to happen), cancel (stop).

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