Glaciers in Argentina – level 3

19-04-2018 15:00

Argentina’s Glaciers National Park is home to more than 200 glaciers and according to the park’s website, is the largest continental ice extension in the world after Antarctica.

In March 2016, as many as 4,500 people witnessed the collapse of an ice tunnel on the 29-kilometre river of ice known as the White Giant. The river is the country’s biggest tourist attraction and large numbers of locals and visitors come to catch a glimpse of the spectacle when the glacier sheds ice roughly every four years.

Difficult words: extension (a long area that is coming off of another area), catch a glimpse (see something for a short time), shed (let off).
