Woman can hear - level 2

Woman can hear - level 2

31-03-2014 07:00

A woman has been deaf since birth. Her world has always been silent for her until now.

At the age of 40, the woman can hear for the first time. She was fitted with implants, and now she learns all the sounds in her life, like normal things such as hearing birds. Most of us take things like hearing for granted, but it is completely new to her.

The woman lost her sight when she was 20. She started to work for a charity. Her life is not easy but she helps people who have similar problems.

The day she could hear for the first time was a day of big change for her.

Difficult words: deaf (not able to hear), implant (thing which is put inside the body to help the patient), take for granted (take as a normal thing).

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

Do you know any deaf people?
