Dragon-boat race in China – level 1
Do you know England’s Oxford and Cambridge boat race? There is also a Chinese version.
There was a boat race in the south of China. There were 16 teams from different parts of China. The teams went 200 and 500 meters. There were teams of men and women.
It is not an easy sport. If you don't know the technique, the boat won't go. But when you know the right technique, it is easy.
Interesting words: race (moment when people try to go very fast because they want to be the best), version (copy of something which is a little different).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
