Asimo is a robot. It makes its debut in Belgium. It may help people soon.

Asimo can open a bottle and pour a drink. It can also communicate. It knows sign language. Asimo also knows what’s around it. It does not walk into things around it.

Asimo can also dance. Sadly, its battery is not very strong. It lasts only 40 minutes.

Difficult words: robot (machine that can do a lot of things and can move), debut (to say hello to the public), may (can), pour (to make a drink go from the bottle to the glass).

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