Big talent in China - level 2

Big talent in China - level 2

09-09-2013 06:00

A Chinese man, who is very interested in snooker, got a snooker table at his son's birth.

His son was growing up, but he couldn't play with normal toys like other children. His father allowed him to play only with the snooker table. So the little boy started to play snooker.

Now, at the age of three, the little boy practices five hours a day. As he has become very good at it, he must be very talented. A lot of people admire him for his exceptional skills.

Difficult words: snooker (game with the special green table, sticks and balls), exceptional (unusually good).

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