Ice Library in Russia – level 1

10-02-2017 15:00

In Russia there is the first ice library in the world. It is from blocks of ice. It is not a usual library. People write their hopes and dreams online. Then the organizers at the library cut them into the ice.

The ice library is an interesting idea. It collects dreams and hopes of people from all over the world. There are 1,000 short sentences in different languages. They form a labyrinth.

One of the visitors hopes that everyone in the world is always healthy. This is his dream.

Difficult words: form (make), labyrinth (a place with many ways where people can be lost).
