Lego city – level 1

10-08-2021 07:00

Timus Murtazin comes from Russia. He loves Lego. He opens a Lego museum near Moscow.

Murtazin starts building Lego when he is 6 years old. He never stops. He builds a Lego city. The city has 55 square meters. People can see it in the museum.

The city is very big. There are houses, streets, and stores. There are some unusual things, too. There is a fire station, a roller coaster, and a train. The train goes around the city.

Asya Borisova is Murtazin’s wife. She does not like Lego in the past. Murtazin shows her that Lego is not only for children. Adults can build with it, too.

Lego will celebrate its 90th birthday next year. The company wants to open 120 new stores worldwide.

Difficult words: roller coaster (a railway which goes up and down, and people enjoy a ride on it), adult (a person who is not a child anymore), worldwide (all over the world).

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