Excited About School – level 2

05-09-2016 15:00

Not all children look forward to going to school, but a pair of twins is really excited. They are just days from something nobody could once imagine.

The pair from London was born conjoined. They were connected at the belly, and they shared just one intestine. Doctors gave them only a 25% chance of survival, but they were lucky. The operation was successful.

Now, four years later, they are going to school. Their mother is just amazed because all of it came so fast. She never thought that this would happen. The twins cannot stop talking about school. They cannot wait to be big girls and go to school like their older sister.

Difficult words: look forward to (if you look forward to something, you are excited about it and can’t wait), conjoined (connected), intestine (the canal/tube from the stomach to the anus).

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