Men carry women - level 1

29-10-2013 06:00

There is a special competition in China. Men carry their wives in this competition. The men must run 150 metres with their wives.

Eighteen couples do this. It is not easy. Each couple does it differently. Each couple has a different style. One couple has an interesting style. The wife’s head is down. Her legs are over the man’s shoulders.

This couple is the best. They train hard and they win. This couple wins a house.

Difficult words: competition (situation when you try to be the best), wife (a man’s woman), couple (a man and a woman).

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