Daylight Saving Time – level 2

03-04-2019 15:00

The European Parliament voted for cancelling the summer time by 2021. The next step is to discuss the issue with EU countries.

The current law makes EU countries move their clocks forward on the last Sunday in March and move them backwards on the last Sunday in October.

Some people say that the summer time saves energy, but the European commission says that the savings are small. Also, most people in the EU want to cancel the summer time.

Difficult words: cancel (stop), issue (a topic or problem for discussion), current (existing now).

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