A dress with a QR code – level 2

03-02-2022 15:00

An Egyptian designer made a special dress which had a QR code on its sleeve.

When you scan the code with your phone, you get information about the country’s most important tourism places. This is very useful especially if you do not have a guide with you. You get information about museums, mosques, and other historic places. You learn names, addresses, operating hours, and price of tickets. You also learn what interesting things are at each place.

The designer makes beautiful dresses which she embroiders with Old Egypt’s designs. She would like to make more clothes for women and for men and children, too.

Difficult words: QR code (a code which looks like black and white squares, and a phone camera can read it), mosque (a place where Muslims talk to god), embroider (to decorate cloth with a needle).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
