Lantern Light Festival – level 1

07-03-2018 07:00

People celebrate the Chinese New Year for 15 days. On the last day, there is a paper lantern festival.

People take paper lanterns. They decorate them with pictures. They write well wishes on them. Then people send the lanterns up into the sky.

The lanterns are pretty. There are many of them. Many people come to watch the show.

Difficult words: lantern (something which looks like a bag with a candle in it), decorate (make pretty).

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