White House Christmas – level 1

03-12-2018 15:00

Christmas is coming. Melania Trump decorates the White House. The decorations are about Christmas. They are also about American treasures. For example, there are skylines of some cities.

Some people like the decorations. Some people do not.

There are some red Christmas trees. Some people think that they look like blood. They do not like them. They think that they look like they are from a horror film.

Difficult words: decorate (make pretty), treasure (something very important and loved), skyline (a picture of a city’s famous buildings).

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