Dragon-boat race in China – level 2
If you enjoy England's Oxford and Cambridge Universities boat race, take a look at the Chinese version. It was the start of China's national dragon-boat racing series in the most southern province in China. There were 16 teams competing for provinces across the country. Teams of men and women took part in the 200 and 500-meter sprints.
It is not easy to move a dragon-boat. The boat won't move, if you haven't trained the technique. But when you train the special skills, you will do very well.
Interesting words: province (part of a country), competing (trying to be better in a race).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
