New continent near Brazil - level 2

New continent near Brazil - level 2

13-05-2013 06:00

Scientists found a special hard rock deep in the Atlantic Ocean and it is not far from Brazil. People suggest that it's a possible existence of a continent in this place in the past because this type of rock called granite and is found only on the ground.

A team of Japanese scientists found the ten-metre-high rock more than 900 metres under the ocean.

A type of sand which is also not formed at sea was found in the area too. The team hasn't taken any parts for testing yet. There will be other teams who will do more scientific work.

Interesting words: suggest (say something in an indirect way), granite (very hard rock).

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