Level 1:

This news is about a plane. It is the Comac C919. It is built in China. It is the first Chinese plane. It will compete with the Airbus 320 and the Boeing 737.

The Comac takes off in Shanghai. Its first flight takes 80 minutes.

Difficult words: will (in the future), compete (try to be better than), take off (to get in the air).

Level 2:
