New type of swimwear - level 2

22-07-2015 15:00

Pale skin is highly-prized in China. It is seen as delicate and feminine. If you have dark skin, on the other hand, people may think that you work in the fields.

That is why women who go to the beach wear facekinis – a swimwear for the face. Facekinis are popular and people have bought over 30,000 facekinis.

There might be a little problem though – they scare little children. That is why facekinis now also come in Peking opera designs that Chinese people like.

Difficult words: pale (not dark), delicate (attractive), feminine (having womanly qualities).

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

Will you get yourself a facekini?
