Fathers are too old - level 1

Fathers are too old - level 1

02-07-2015 15:00

Fathers in England are getting older. In the 1990s, they were 31. Now, they are 33.

Younger fathers have healthier children, so this is a problem. One British doctor has a solution. He suggests that young men freeze their sperm. When the man is old, and he wants to have a baby, he can use his frozen sperm.

Difficult words: solution (something that you do to solve or stop a problem), suggest (to say), freeze (to make really cold), sperm (the things which come out of the penis when men have sex).

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

What do you think about freezing sperm?
