Disneyland in China – level 1

22-06-2016 07:00

Disney opens a theme park in Shanghai, China. It has a grand opening ceremony. Many people come. Disneyland is a big investment. It costs 5.5 billion dollars.

China is becoming a better and better place for investment. This is good for China and America, too.

There are 330 million people at the theme park. These people have enough money to go to the park. These 330 million people can get there in 3 hours.

Difficult words: theme park (a place like Disneyland), grand opening ceremony (the event when something opens for the first time and there is a big show), investment (investing/putting money into business).

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