Nobel Peace Prize Winners – level 1

12-10-2018 07:00

Trump may get the Nobel Peace Prize. It will be controversial if he wins. He will not be alone. Henry Kissinger wins when he has talks to help North Vietnam. Critics say that he bombs Vietnam and Cambodia.

Aung San Suu Kyi wins the prize, too. She makes the government of Myanmar democratic. Now, critics say that she is not stopping attacks against people there.

Yasser Arafat wins when he tries to help with peace in Israel and Palestine. Critics say that he attacks Israel.

Barack Obama wins when he tries to help the people of the world. Critics say that he was also part of the Libyan war.

Difficult words: controversial (people think different things about controversial problems), will (in the future), government (the bosses of a country), was (past of ‘is’).

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