Putin in a submarine – level 1

24-08-2015 15:00

Vladimir Putin is the Russian President. He is in Sevastopol. Sevastopol is in Crimea.

He enters a submarine. The submarine goes underwater. It is in the Black Sea.

There are shipwrecks in the water. Putin looks at them. There are also things at the bottom of the sea. These objects are from the 11th century.

Difficult words: submarine (people go in this machine to move under the water), shipwreck (a destroyed ship at the bottom of the sea), object (a thing).

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