Is there a ghost?! – level 1

08-08-2014 15:00

This happens at a theatre in England. A security camera captures something strange. It happens at night. A chair moves on its own.

This is not normal. Why did the chair move? Did a ghost move it? We do not know. The theatre manager said that strange things happen at this theatre.

Difficult words: capture (record), strange (not normal), on its own (nobody moves it but it moves anyway), ghost (some people think that when a person dies he/she stays alive as a ghost).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you believe in ghosts?
