World Pup – level 1

10-07-2018 07:00

Football fans are watching the World Cup. Some matches can be stressful.

To help fans de-stress, there is a match with little dogs. One team is of English Bulldogs. The other team is of Maltese Bichons. It is a World Pup match.

The dogs play for 90 minutes. One Bichon poops on the pitch. He gets a red card.

Difficult words: match (a game of football), pup (a young dog), pitch (the area where football is played).

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