Crazy barbershop in Tokyo – level 1

07-01-2015 07:00

This news is from Japan. There is a barbershop in Tokyo. It offers a special service – the barber cuts and colours your hair for free!

However, there is a little problem. You cannot say what you want. The barber can do anything! People’s hair can look crazy. People call the shop the crazy barbershop.

People come to it. They want crazy hairstyles. It is the end of the year. People want to have fun. They want to be different.

Difficult words: barbershop (a shop where people cut and colour your hair), offer (when you say that you want to give something to somebody).

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