Dogs in Christmas Jumpers – level 1

19-12-2017 07:00

‘Save the Children’ is an international organisation. It helps children. On 15th December, the organisation celebrates ‘Christmas Jumper Day’.

People give 2 pounds to help children. They put on silly Christmas jumpers and meet. They talk and have fun.

People from ‘Save the Children’ have another idea. Dogs can wear Christmas jumpers, too.

’Save the Children’ organises a meeting for humans and dogs. Hundreds of dogs meet in a park in London. They all wear Christmas jumpers.

Difficult words: international (with work in more countries), celebrate (have fun, organise), jumper (a sweater in British English), silly (funny, interesting, unusual).

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