Remembering Adam West – level 2

21-06-2017 15:00

Adam West was an actor who played Batman in the 1960s TV series. He died last week at the age of 88. In his honour, people lit up the Bat-Signal across Los Angeles City Hall.

Burt Ward played Robin in the show and he was a friend of West’s. He gave a speech at the event. He said that Adam West spent his life as a performer who made people happy, made them laugh, and tried to make the world a better place.

Difficult words: Bat-Signal (Batman’s signal to go somewhere), performer (a person who entertains people).
