Harbin Ice Festival - level 1
People hold a festival in Northeast China. It is the Harbin Ice and Snow Festival. Harbin is a city. Japan, Canada and Norway organise other ice festivals.
The biggest attraction is an ice slide. It is 300 metres long. It is made from blocks of ice. People take these blocks from a frozen river. They put lights in the ice. The lights make the ice colourful.
There is also a snow slide. It is shorter. It is 150 metres long. People like it. They wait for hours to ride on it.
Difficult words: be held (to happen/to be organised), attraction (something that many people like and visit), slide (something like a small road on a hill; you ride down the hill and have fun).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
