Old man from Bolivia - level 1

Old man from Bolivia - level 1

02-09-2013 06:00

A man from Bolivia is very old. He says that he is 123 years old. If he says the truth, he is the oldest man in the world.

But we don't know if he says the truth. He has no paper proving his birth. We cannot be sure about his age.

The old man lives in a small village. The village is in the mountains. The old man likes walking around it. It is good for his body.

Difficult words: truth (right), birth (when you start your life).

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