Migrants try to board a ferry – level 1

09-09-2014 07:00

This news is from the French port of Calais. A boat was going to go to England. Some migrants wanted to get on the boat. There were more than a hundred of them. Their camera filmed them. The crew stopped the migrants. The crew raised the access ramp. They shot water at the migrants, too.

Difficult words: crew (people who work on the ship), raise (to move something up), access ramp (an object you walk on to go up something).

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

Do you consider immigration a problem?
