Living with very large feet - level 1

This news is about a man. He is from Venezuela. He is 20 years old. He has the largest feet in the world.

By European standards, the feet are size 59. In the UK, the feet are size 18.

A German shoemaker comes to Venezuela. He makes the man shoes. He told Guinness World Records about the feet. Now, this man is in the Guinness Book of Records.

People bullied the man at school. He is OK now. He wants to help people.

Difficult words: standards (type of sizes), shoemaker (somebody who makes shoes), was (“is” in the past), bully (to do bad things to somebody).

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