World Ice Fishing Championship – level 1

06-03-2017 15:00

In Latvia, the World Ice Fishing Championship happens. This is the championship’s 14th year. People work in teams or by themselves. They try to catch the most fish.

One person from Russia said that ice fishing is interesting. Normal fishing is boring. Ice fishing is like doing ‘chess on ice’.

Ukraine wins the championship this year. The team has 1 kilogramme more of fish than Latvia. Latvia is in second place.

Difficult words: championship (when people try to be the best at something), chess on ice (the man is saying that ice fishing is very complicated and difficult).

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