Cockroach farm in China - level 1
Do you like cockroaches? Well, most people don’t. However, one man from China loves them.
He has a cockroach farm. He has around one mile square of cockroaches. One kilo of cockroaches sells for $16. The farm brings the man a lot of money. People use cockroach shells and oil in Chinese medicine. They treat a lot of diseases.
Difficult words: shell (hard outer part of the bug’s body), treat (make the disease less serious/help the ill person), disease (something which makes you feel unwell).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
