Chocolate Thomas the Tank Engine – level 1

26-04-2017 07:00

In England, master chocolatiers make something special for Easter. They make a big chocolate Thomas the Tank Engine. It takes them 250 hours. The replica is 140 kilogrammes heavy.

Thomas comes to a train station in London. Children and adults are happy to see him. A ‘Fat Controller’ also comes. He gives out chocolate eggs.

Difficult words: master chocolatier (a person who is very good at making chocolate), replica (a copy), Fat Controller (the person who runs the trains in the ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ books).

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