Hot Air Balloons in Argentina – level 2

08-11-2017 15:00

Argentina hosted its largest hot air balloon fiesta ever last Saturday. There were more than 20 balloons at the event in Buenos Aires.

The audience loved the balloons. One visitor said that he knew hot air balloons only from videos before the event. A woman said that she always wanted to see these balloons, so this fulfilled her dream.

Difficult words: fiesta (a fun event in Spanish), audience (people who watch something), fulfil a dream (make the dream real).

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