Town with no sun - level 1

Town with no sun - level 1

07-11-2013 06:00

There is a town in Norway. The town is dark. It doesn’t get enough light.

This is because of high mountains. The mountains are around the town. They block all the light. People can go up on one mountain. There is light on the mountain.

They can also go to the town centre. There is light, too. Big mirrors send the light. The mirrors are on the mountain. People like this very much.

Difficult words: dark (without light), mountain (big hill), mirror (when you look in the mirror, you see your body).

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