Weather in Europe – level 1

03-07-2019 07:00

Temperatures can get extremely high in summer. This weather can be dangerous. In 2003, thousands of people die in France because of a heatwave.

Now it is really hot in Europe again. Records are broken in France, Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.

Authorities say that people should be careful. Italy says that 16 cities are extremely hot. There is a big fire in Spain. People think the fire starts because it is so hot.

Difficult words: heatwave (the time when it is very hot), authorities (the people who tell people what to do), should (if you should do something, it is very good to do it).

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