Bed race in Thailand - level 2

Bed race in Thailand - level 2

03-02-2015 15:00

Hundreds of people took part in an international bed race in Thailand. People organise the race every year, and the teams come from every corner of the world.

The teams of two wear costumes and push their decorated beds for two kilometres. Excited spectators watch the show.

But the event is more than just having fun. Organisers say that it also helps to bring people of different groups together.

Difficult words: costume (funny/interesting clothing which can make you look like something/somebody), spectator (a person who watches something).

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