Prime Minister Has a Baby – level 2

25-06-2018 15:00

Jacinda Ardern, the Prime Minister of New Zealand, gave birth to her daughter last week. She plans to take a six-week leave before returning to work.

She is only the second elected world leader to give birth while in office. The first one was Pakistan’s Benazir Bhutto who had a baby 28 years ago.

Difficult words: elected (chosen by the people), in office (the time when someone is a leader).

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