Protests in Czech Republic – level 1

01-07-2019 07:00

People in the Czech Republic protest. The protests are the biggest since 1989. People are protesting the country’s prime minister. They want him to step down.

The prime minister’s name is Andrej Babiš. People say that he is using his position to get richer. The EU is also investigating him. The EU writes a report. It says that Babiš gets extra money from the EU.

This is not OK because the money is only for small businesses. Babiš lies to get this money. He says that he does not have a farm. He is a billionaire, so this money is not for him. The report says that he must give back $20 million.

Difficult words: since (from), investigate (find out more), report (an official document).

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