The coldest village in the world – level 2

The coldest village in the world – level 2

07-11-2016 15:00

If you are tired of the cold winter, think about the residents of a Russian town who say that they live in the coldest town on Earth. Their town is called Oymyakon and it lies deep in Siberia. The temperatures there very often drop to minus 60. These local people say that these low temperatures sometimes last for ten days in a row.

There is another amazing thing in their town. It is a horse that survives in these low temperatures. The horse is small but perfectly formed for cold winters.

Difficult words: residents (people who live somewhere), in a row (without a pause).
