Meeting for the Presidential Candidate in France – level 2
Thousands of people met in Paris. They wanted to support the presidential candidate Francios Fillon. He may not stay in the presidential race because he faces corruption charges. He arranged jobs in the parliament for his wife and children, but they never did them. Some people wanted the candidate to pull out of the race.
The candidate thanked to his supporters for coming to the meeting. There were many people at the meeting, but it is still not sure if he will stay in the presidential race.
Difficult words: face (be confronted with), corruption charges (when police ask you about something that you did that might be bad), arrange (prepare), pull out (stop).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
