Hendrix and Handel - level 1
Jimi Hendrix was a guitar player. He was very good. He was born in 1942 in Seattle, USA. He also lived in London. He lived there in 1968 and 1969. He died in 1970. He was 27.
People refit his London flat. It looks like how it did in 1968. The refit costs 2.5 million pounds. The refit takes 2 years. You can visit the flat now.
Handel was a composer. He lived next door to Hendrix. However, he lived there in 1700. They lived 200 years apart.
Difficult words: was (past of “is”), -ed/-d (“in the past”), refit (to make nice and to seem new again), composer (a person who writes music).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
