04-07-2014 15:00

This news is from Canada. It is about a woman. She has some problems with her body. She goes to hospital. Doctors tell her that she suffers from stress. They send her away.

The woman gets in her car. The same problems appear again. She cannot feel a part of her face. She cannot move her arm easily. She is having a mini stroke.

The woman goes to a different hospital. Doctors help her there.

Difficult words: suffer (to be in a hard situation and in pain), appear (happen), mini (small), stroke (when blood cannot go to your brain).

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