Dangerous Egyptian Haircut – level 1

12-08-2021 15:00

This news is about a barber. He is from Egypt. A family member asks him to cut his hair. The barber does not have his scissors. He uses other tools.

The barber likes to cut hair with these tools. He starts to cut hair with them at his salon, too. He uses a hammer, a razor, a knife and meat cleavers.

People call the barber ‘the Joker’.

Difficult words: barber (a person who cuts people’s hair), tool (a thing which you use to do something), meat cleaver (a big heavy knife for cutting meat).

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