Migrants in Turkey – level 1

11-03-2020 15:00

There are many migrants in Turkey. They come mainly from Syria. They often come to Europe through Turkey. Turkey has a deal with the EU about migrants.

However, Turkey has another idea now. Turkey does not want to stop the migrants on their way to Europe.

Greece and Bulgaria are afraid. They close their borders with Turkey. Many migrants make camps on the Turkish border. They want to get to Greece.

Greek police want to stop the migrants. They use tear gas to stop them. Last week, Greece returns 35,000 migrants to Turkey. Turkey sends 1,000 police officers to the border. They help solve the situation.

Difficult words: migrant (a person who comes to another country to live a better life), camp (a place where people live in tents for some time), tear gas (gas that police use to stop people).

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