Erdogan of Turkey – level 1

02-07-2018 07:00

Erdogan is a Turkish leader. He becomes the Prime Minister in 2003. He becomes the president of Turkey in 2014. In 2017, there is a referendum. People vote about the president’s powers. They vote for the president to have a lot of power.

Now in 2018, people vote for Erdogan again. He will be president for the next five years.

Difficult words: referendum (when people vote for something to change), power (when you can do something), will (in the future).

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