Person in the air - level 1

People in London saw something special. They saw a magic trick.

A man was in the air. He was three metres above the ground. He touched one side of a double-decker bus. He touched it with only one hand. His body was in the air. He was not afraid. He was OK. He even used his mobile phone.

The bus was going in central London. People saw him and they liked it. They didn't know how he did the trick.

Interesting words: magic (not normal), double-decker bus (big red bus with two floors), afraid (full of fear).

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