Chocolate in Australia - level 3

Chocolate in Australia - level 3

28-01-2014 06:00

In Melbourne, Australia, it’s hot! Forty-two degrees centigrade, to be exact. It’s never been that warm in the UK! And to prove just how heated it is Down Under, a man has melted a Lindt chocolate ball on the ground in less than three minutes! He’s made a time-lapse, though, to make it look cooler.

Blimey O’Riley! We’re glad we don’t have to clean that up.

Difficult words: centigrade (another term for Celsius), Down Under (Australia and New Zealand), time-lapse (taking pictures over a period of time and then playing them as a video), blimey O’Riley (expression of surprise).
