Einstein’s Letter on Auction – level 1

09-03-2018 15:00

Albert Einstein writes a letter to a woman. He writes it in 1921. He shows his feelings in this letter.

Einstein wants to meet the woman. She does not want to meet him. She is 22 years old. She is modest. She does not want to meet famous people.

The letter goes on auction. It is going to be expensive. One of Einstein’s letters sells for 1.3 million US dollars.

Difficult words: feelings (emotions, that he likes her), modest (she does not want to show off), auction (an event when something special is sold to the person who offers the most money for it).
