Cockroach Farm in China – level 2

22-02-2022 15:00

Most people don’t like cockroaches, but one man from China is an exception. He has a cockroach farm which brings him a fortune.

He has nearly one square mile of the bugs, and one kilo of them sells for $16. People use cockroach shells and oil in Chinese medicine to treat a lot of diseases. However, these medical products say nothing about the cockroaches on their information packets. The reason why is clear.

But, the farmer is proud of his cockroach farm anyway.

Difficult words: exception (he is different, not like most people), fortune (a lot of money), packet (box in which the medicine is).

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