Here is some news from Taiwan. A man is fishing. Something goes wrong. A big wave takes him away.

The man’s wife is home. She is waiting for him, but he doesn’t come. She knows that something is wrong. She calls for help.

The man is in the water. He cannot swim. He holds onto a piece of wood. The man sees some lights. He starts to move his legs and gets on shore.

The man goes to hospital. His condition is not serious.

Difficult words: shore (area where sea and the land touch), condition (situation of the body).

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