Jump from Mount Everest - level 1
A man from Russia was on Mount Everest. He wanted to jump and fly from Mount Everest. He was preparing for two years. He had a special suit for the flying. He put it on and jumped from Mount Everest.
All of this was difficult because the weather was so bad. He flew for one minute. The speed was 120 miles per hour. At the end of his flying he used a parachute. He is OK now. He was a very brave man.
Interesting words: suit (special clothes for all the body), flew (past form of fly), parachute (thing for a slow fall).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
