British couple win a lottery – level 3

25-05-2022 07:00

Last week, Joe and Jess Thwaite from Gloucester won a 230-million-dollar jackpot on EuroMillions. It became the UK’s biggest lottery haul and made the couple richer than singer Adele.

The couple said they initially thought the win was a mistake. They said that the win would give them time to share experiences and go on adventures with their family and friends.

Mrs. Thwaite runs a hairdressing salon with her sister; however, she’s going to reconsider her role there. Mr. Thwaite confirmed he’d already left his job as a communications sales manager. The couple have two children, and they’d always talked about going to Hawaii. The win will give them time to dream.

Difficult words: jackpot (a large cash prize in a game or lottery), haul (a large amount), initially (at first).
