Shoes in Paris – level 1

03-12-2015 07:00

Leaders from different countries come to Paris. They come to a conference. They talk about climate at the conference.

People are interested in climate too. They want to march, but they cannot. It is because of the Paris attacks. People are scared.

People cannot march, but they can do something else. They can leave their shoes in a square. One pair is for one person.

Celebrities put their shoes in the square too. The Pope puts his shoes there.

Difficult words: conference (an event when people talk about a problem), climate (the weather of the planet), march (go in the streets).

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