Tacos with insects - level 1

Tacos with insects - level 1

23-09-2014 15:00

This news is about food. A restaurant in Mexico offers something special. It puts insects in its tacos. You can have, for example, bugs, spiders and scorpions.

The insects are wild. People go into the hills, lift up rocks and catch them. This can be dangerous because some insects sting.

Some people don’t want to eat insects. Then they try it, and they like it! Some insects don’t have a characteristic flavour. You can give them any flavour that you want.

Difficult words: insect (small animal with six legs), sting (attack with a sharp part of the body), flavour (how something tastes).

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