Spring in Mexico – level 1

28-03-2017 15:00

It is the spring equinox. Mexicans celebrate it. They visit the pyramids of Teotihuacan. The pyramids are 40 kilometres from Mexico City.

People ask for peace and harmony. Many people walk up the Pyramid of the Sun. They want to get its energy.

People also wear white clothing. They believe that the clothing can help them get energy from the sun.

Difficult words: equinox (the date when the day is as long as the night), peace and harmony (no war, no fighting; when everything is good), believe (if you believe something, you think that it is true).

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