The day the first website was published – level 3
Tim Berners-Lee was born in London in 1955. Both his parents were computer scientists. Tim made his first computer during his university years.
After his studies, he started to work in Switzerland. In 1980, he created a program that was able to connect two computers within one company. It was great, but Tim wanted more. He wanted to connect the computers of any two people. He invented the HTML programming language that made it possible.
On August 6, 1989, he published the first-ever website on the Internet. It was the beginning of the next phase in the information revolution. Thanks to his invention, today we can get information from all over the world with just a few clicks.
Difficult words: within (inside an organization), invent (to design something new), ever (in history), invention (a new instrument that helps people).
