London Pride – level 1

30-06-2016 15:00

London’s 43rd Pride parade happens. Tens of thousands of people come. There are also 300 groups at the event. One of the groups is the Met police.

The police stop. One officer wants to ask his boyfriend a question. He takes off his hat and gets on one knee. He proposes to him. And, of course, his boyfriend says yes!

Difficult words: Met (metropolitan – in a metropolis, a big city, a capital city), propose (ask somebody if he or she wants to marry you).

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