London Pride – level 2

30-06-2016 15:00

London’s 43rd Pride parade attracted tens of thousands of people. Over 300 groups marched in the event to show support to the LGBT community. One of the groups was also the Met police.

The group came to a sudden stop – one officer had a very important question to ask his boyfriend. He took off his hat and got down on one knee and proposed. And, of course, his boyfriend said yes!

Difficult words: march (go, walk), support (help), Met (metropolitan – relating to a metropolis, the capital), 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.
