Tallest man gets married - level 3

Tallest man gets married - level 3

04-11-2013 06:00

Closer to Cloud 9 than most of us as the world’s tallest man ties the knot.

Turkish farmer Sultan Kosen, who holds the World Record for tallest living man at 8 foot 3 inches, married 21-year-old Syrian, Merve Dibo, who at 5 foot 8, barely reaches his waist.

“I found the woman of my life after a long search. I’m truly happy for that.”

So love really was in the air as the couple wed in Kosen’s native Turkey with over 1500 guests and an appropriately tall cake.

Difficult words:

be on cloud 9 (be very happy) (idiom for heaven)

tie the knot (get married).
