Man on a boat – level 2
A man wanted to go from Morocco to Spain illegally. He hid in the turbine of a ferry engine.
Spanish police intercepted the man on Wednesday. The 20-year-old wore wetsuit and held a bag with his things.
Difficult words: illegally (without following laws), turbine (wheel which moves water), intercept (to stop somebody), wetsuit (rubber clothing for water sports and to keep warm in the ocean).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Do you have illegal immigrants in your country?
