127 years old woman - level 2

A woman, who is 127 years old, is now officially China's oldest person.

She was born in 1886 and she got married in 1903. Now, she has nearly 40 grandchildren but she doesn't need much help from them. She says that she can still take care of herself.

Although she can't do heavy work, the old woman still manages to do some daily work. She feeds the chickens, for example. And when it's time to have fun, she never says "no" to a drink and a song.

Difficult words: feed (give food).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section
