Fearless Mardi Gras – level 1

08-03-2019 15:00

In Australia, there is a big parade. It is the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade. Thousands of people come. Bars are open late so people can celebrate.

The parade’s theme is ‘fearless’. The organisers want all people to live bravely. They want people to do this even if they are scared.

Difficult words: parade (when people walk through the street and it is a type of a party/celebration), Mardi Gras (some of the celebrations during religious holidays), theme (the idea which is important for an event or a story).

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