Russia and China together – level 1

27-05-2014 07:00

Russia and China work together. Russia will give China natural gas. The gas is worth 400 billion dollars.

The Russian and Chinese navies also work together. They are training. This is an important moment for the two countries. The USA is not happy about this.

Difficult words: natural gas (gas which is used for heating and lighting), be worth (have value in money), navy (soldiers who fight at sea).

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