Twins in Taiwan - level 1

Twins in Taiwan - level 1

28-02-2014 07:00

The government in Taiwan organises an event. It is a meeting of twins. Hundreds of twins come.

Some twins wear the same clothes. Five boys have the same yellow clothes. Their mother cannot say who is who. Some twins wear costumes. They dress as pandas or cowboys.

Old twins are at the event, too. There is a set of twins. One twin is a man, and the second twin is a woman. The twins are around 80 years old. They are the oldest twins at the event.

Difficult words: government (bosses of the country), event (when people meet and do something together), meeting (people come together), twins (brothers or sisters who were born at the same time or close to the same time), come (arrive), who is who (the mother cannot recognize her sons), costume (clothes which make you look like something special).

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