Friends are back – level 2

20-01-2016 15:00

“Friends” premiered in 1994 and it became one of NBC’s most-watched shows. It is also one of the greatest TV shows in history.

The popular sitcom followed the lives of young New Yorkers in their mid-20s. Their names were Ross, Phoebe, Chandler, Monica, Rachel and Joey.

In 2004, the TV show came to an end, and the actors rarely came together as a group. But now, TV bosses announced that the friends will get together for a two-hour comedy special on NBC next month.

Difficult words: NBC (an American television channel), follow (to show), announce (to say something officially).

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