Eurovision Song Contest – level 1

26-05-2021 07:00

The Eurovision Song Contest is a competition. It is about singing. Countries compete against each other. Most countries are European. Other countries can compete, too.

The Eurovision Song Contest takes place every year. It starts in 1956. Seven countries compete in 1956.

The most successful country is Ireland. Ireland wins seven times. Sweden wins six times.

Eurovision has many rules. All singers must sing live. The song must not be more than three minutes long. There must not be any animals.

The show is very special and different. Millions of people watch it every year. Some people love it and some people hate it.

Difficult words: competition (an event when people or teams want to be better than the others), compete (when you do something and you want to be better than the others at it), rule (what somebody must or must not do).

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