This news is from China. It is cold there. It is -12°C. Part of a waterfall freezes. This waterfall is on the Yellow River.

The waterfall looks beautiful. There is ice and icicles everywhere. People want to see this. They come to have a look.

However, it can get even colder. Two years ago, it was -40°C. When this happens, the whole waterfall can freeze.

Difficult words: freeze (to turn into ice), icicle (a thin, hanging piece of ice), was (past of “to be”).

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