Granny tries skydiving - level 2
An 81-year-old Chinese woman wanted to see her son, so she flew to Australia to visit him. It was her first journey on a plane.
In Australia, she discovered skydiving lessons on an offer for tourists. The granny told her son that she wanted to do skydiving. After a week of training and passing all the health checks, the brave old woman skydived. She said that it was amazing and wonderful.
The grandma is a fun-loving person. She says that old age won’t stop her from pursuing her dreams.
Difficult words: on an offer (available), health check (when the doctor has a look at you to see if you have good or bad health), to pursue one’s dream (to try to make your wishes or hopes come true).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
