Goldfish beauty contest - level 2
A beauty contest took place in China. It only wasn’t about beautiful people, but it was about beautiful goldfish. Around 10,000 goldfish competed for the title of Miss Goldfish.
There were 16 different categories, and the judges graded the fish in five aspects – features, colour, figure, swimming and general impression.
People often export goldfish from this region of China to Japan, Singapore and other countries around the world.
Difficult words: grade (to say what level of quality something has), feature (parts of something), general impression (how something makes you feel).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Do you have a goldfish? :-)
