Vaccine Cake – level 1

12-03-2021 15:00

A café in Prague, the Czech Republic, makes unusual cakes. Last year, the café makes a special cake. It looks like the coronavirus. People love it. It is very popular.

The café makes a new cake now. It looks like the coronavirus vaccine. A vaccine is a medicine that stops a sickness.

The cake has red crosses on the sides. A small vaccine capsule is on the top. The cake tastes of bananas and strawberries. A little bit of strawberry alcohol is in the capsule. People love the new cake, too.

The situation is bad in the Czech Republic now. Many people have the coronavirus. People must not travel. Schools close.

The café wants to make people happy. The café reminds people that it is important to get the coronavirus vaccine. It will make the situation better.

Difficult words: cross (a shape when two lines go across each other), capsule (a small soft case which often has a medicine in it and people eat it), remind (to make people remember someone or something).

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