Sleep with sharks – level 1

06-04-2016 07:00

Do you use Airbnb? If so, you can win a prize. You can win a stay in a special room. This room is see-through and it is in a tank.

The tank is ten metres deep in the water. There are 35 sharks in the tank. You can see them very well. The room is in Paris.

Difficult words: stay (when you visit somewhere for over a day), see-through (you can see though it because it is made of glass), tank (a big box for fish).

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