  • США: расследование скандала с Volkswagen
  • Европейский план по мигрантам
  • Бессмертный Пеле

СКРИПТ УРОКА:

Reports from the United States say the Justice Department has launched a criminal probe into Volkswagen's rigging of its emission tests. Volkswagen has admitted that 11m of its diesel vehicles contained software to evade emissions tests.

Central European states have reacted angrily to plans to use compulsory quotas to relocate 120,000 refugees across the continent. The idea was voted through despite objections from several countries including Hungary and the Czech Republic.

The renowned pop artist Andy Warhol predicted that one day everyone would be famous for 15 minutes but it would be Pele whose fame would last for 15 centuries. Immortalised in room after room of artwork, it's easy to believe that he may always be the gold standard against which all footballers are judged.

ИЗУЧАЕМАЯ ЛЕКСИКА:

  • probe - зд. расследование
  • rigging - фальсификация или мошенничество
  • compulsory quotas - обязательные квоты
  • immortalised - увековеченный
