Bulldog sets a new world record – level 2

18-11-2015 15:00

Last Wednesday, It was the Guinness World Record Day. People made record attempts around the world to celebrate the day.

A bulldog named Otto set a world record for the longest human tunnel traveled through by a dog on a skateboard. Thirty people stood in a line with their legs apart, so the dog could set the record by riding below them.

He showed off his skills and enjoyed the company of the people.

Difficult words: attempt (to try), show off (to show people what you can do), company (a presence; that the people were there).

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