Greece Gets Tourists – level 1

13-04-2020 07:00

Greece is a country in Europe. Many tourists visit it every year. Last year, Greece gets more than $19 billlion from tourism.

Now, the situation is different. Many countries around the world have difficult rules about traveling. Airlines are canceling their flights. People cannot travel. It is bad for travel companies, hotels, and restaurants.

Greece has a new idea. The country starts a website. The website is for tourists. It is very interesting and attractive. There are videos and articles about Greece. They show Greek history, culture, or famous people.

Greece hopes that tourists like the website. The Greek government’s tourism organization hopes that tourists come back when the coronavirus pandemic ends.

Difficult words: tourism (when people visit different places for a holiday or business), tourist (a person who travels for a holiday or business), attractive (very interesting and pleasant), pandemic (when there is a disease in many countries).

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