Family with six fingers - level 2

Family with six fingers - level 2

01-07-2014 15:00

A family from Brazil wants its country to win the World Cup for the sixth time. The people in the family give a lot of energy for Brazil. They believe that their energy will flow onto the pitch and make the players play well.

However, there is more to this story. There is something that makes this family special. The family members were all born with six fingers on each hand and foot. This condition is caused by a rare genetic condition.

The media likes the family, and Brazil can hope its positive energy works!

Difficult words: flow (go), pitch (area where football is played), rare genetic condition (few people have this condition in their bodies).

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