Chinese man looks like Obama - level 2
Xiao is a Chinese man who looks like Barack Obama. His birthday is one day apart from Obama’s, and they also share the same blood type.
Xiao’s English is bad, but he can still capture the spirit of Barack Obama. When he goes on stage to speak, he speaks in a mix of real English and fake English. Nobody understands him, but he sounds like the president.
Xiao is an actor. He played roles in experimental short films, and he plays a gangster in a comedy film. People will release the film next summer.
Difficult words: spirit (the way somebody speaks and does things), stage (a raised area where speakers speak and actors in a theatre act), release (to show something to people).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
