Excited About School – level 1

05-09-2016 15:00

This story is about two girls. They are from London. They are born conjoined. They are connected at the belly.

Doctors worry about them. Their situation is not good. The twins have only a 25% chance of survival.

The doctors operate on them. The operation is successful. The twins are fine.

Now, it is four years after the operation. The girls are going to school. They cannot wait! They want to be big girls. Big girls go to school.

Difficult words: conjoined (connected), chance of survival (the chance that you will stay alive), successful (good, everything is fine).

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