French police and immigrants – level 1

04-06-2014 07:00

Immigrants come to France. They are often from Asia, The Middle East or Africa. They want to live in Europe.

Some people don’t want immigrants in Europe. They make the immigrants go. Police make 600 to 800 immigrants go.

The operation happened days after the European elections. A political group won. This political group does not like immigrants.

Difficult words: immigrant (person who moves from one country to another), operation (the action), election (situation when people choose their bosses) win (to be chosen).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you have a lot of immigrants in your country?
