Lake in the Czech Republic – level 1

14-02-2017 15:00

The Lipno Dam is in the Czech Republic. It is in the south of the country. It is very cold now in the Czech Republic. The lake freezes.

The locals want more tourists to come. They have an idea. They turn the lake into an ice skating track. Around 10,000 people visit.

Difficult words: dam (a wall which holds water to make a lake), freeze (turn to ice), locals (local people, people who live in the area), track (a way where you can do some type of sport).

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