Extreme ironing - level 1

Extreme ironing - level 1

12-05-2015 15:00

This news is about a man. He is from Great Britain. One day, he comes home. He finds a lot of clothes.

He must iron these clothes. He thinks that ironing is boring. He wants to make it fun. He takes the clothes and the iron outside. He irons the clothes outside.

People like his idea. They do this, too. People iron underwater, upside down, and on the back of a cow. This is called extreme ironing.

Difficult words: iron verb (to use the iron to make clothes look nice), boring (not interesting or fun), iron noun (a thing which gets hot and is used for ironing).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about extreme ironing? Is it fun? Is it crazy? Is it a sport?
