France Wins World Cup – level 1

23-07-2018 07:00

France beats Croatia 4–2 in the World Cup. This means that France wins the World Cup. People in France celebrate. Some people get violent. The police must step in.

The football players come back home. They are in a parade. They are in an open-top bus. Many people come to see them.

After the parade, the players meet President Macron.

Difficult words: celebrate (be happy and have fun), violent (aggressive, when you break things and hurt other people), step in (do something about the problem), parade (an event when people slowly walk through the city because they are celebrating something).

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