Fathers Are Too Old – level 1

19-07-2022 15:00

Fathers in England are getting older. In the 1990s, they were 31. Now, they are 33.

Younger fathers have healthier children, so this is a problem. One British doctor has a solution. He suggests that young men freeze their sperm. When the man is old, and he wants to have a baby, he can use his frozen sperm.

Difficult words: solution (something that you do to solve or stop a problem), suggest (to say), freeze (to make really cold), sperm (the things which come out of the penis when men have sex).

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

What do you think about freezing sperm?
