People in Germany Vote – level 1

28-09-2017 07:00

People in Germany vote. They choose from political parties. Angela Merkel’s party wins. This is Merkel’s fourth win.

Merkel’s party is called CDU. It wins but another party gets strong too. This party is called the AfD. The AfD is an anti-immigration party.

A lot of people like it. Other people say that it is like the Nazis. They do not like it. They protest against the AfD.

Difficult words: vote (choose your country’s leaders), political party (a group of people who believe in something and want to be the bosses of a country), Angela Merkel (the leader of Germany right now), immigration (people coming to your country from other countries).

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