Most Powerful Women in the World – level 1

01-06-2015 15:00

Forbes is an American business magazine. Every year, it makes a list. There are 100 women on the list. These women are the most powerful women in the world.

Who is number one? It is Angela Merkel. She is the German Chancellor. Hillary Clinton is the second most powerful woman.

Oprah Winfrey is the richest woman. She has 2 billion pounds. Singer Beyonce leads in the entertainment field.

Difficult words: chancellor (the most important person in some countries in poltics), lead (to be the best), entertainment field (this is a category for singers, actors/actresses and people who you can see in the TV).

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