Weather in the USA – level 1

21-11-2018 15:00

Winter arrives in parts of the USA. Up to six inches (15 centimetres) of snow fall in North-eastern America. This causes problems with traffic. Some schools close.

However, not everybody sees the weather as a problem. Panda BeiBei likes the snow. She lives at the Smithsonian Zoo in Washington. She plays in the snow.

In the north-east, it is winter. In California, however, people are still fighting wildfires. The situation is not good there.

Difficult words: arrive (come), cause (make), wildfire (a large fire which burns forests and houses).

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