Giant Japanese salamander
This news is from Japan. A student goes to school. He sees a salamander. It is really big. It walks down a footpath. It seems relaxed and not worried.
The student films the salamander. He also calls the police. The police don’t do anything. They only watch the salamander. It returns back to the river.
The salamander is not measured. We don’t know its length. Salamanders grow up to 150 centimetres. Most of them are between 60-70 centimetres.
The student uploads his video on YouTube. Over 1.8 million people see the video.
Difficult words: footpath (a road for walking), measure (to find out the length), upload (put).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
