Jump into the Amazon River - level 1

Jump into the Amazon River - level 1

28-03-2014 15:00

A man does something dangerous. He jumps off a tree. The tree is 100 years old. It is 38 metres tall. It is near the border between Peru, Colombia and Brazil.

The man climbs up on the tree. He says that it is a little difficult. However, the view from up there is beautiful. The water is perfect, too.

This man is the first man to do something like this.

Difficult words: border (area when one country ends and another starts), however (but), view (what you can see).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
