James Bond in Austria – level 2

14-01-2015 15:00

Filming for the new Bond film ‘SPECTRE’ began in December last year. Daniel Craig appeared on a boat on the river Thames in London.

The filming continues in the Austrian Alps. Craig and the latest Bond Girl were seen atop a mountain.

The shooting excited some skiers and they were hoping to see Bond. Others were annoyed because the filming closed a part of the ski resort.

Difficult words: shooting (filming), annoyed (to be a little angry), resort (a place where people go on holiday).

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

Are you a fan of the Bond movies?
