Line dancing record – level 1

19-11-2014 07:00

People set another world record. Around 25,000 people meet in a Chinese city. They line dance. There are 8,000 more people than at the second largest line dance.

In Shanghai, a lot of people eat breakfast in bed. They try to set a new record, too. In London, many people dress up as penguins.

Difficult words: line dance (you dance in a line with other people at the same time), penguin (a big black and white sea bird which cannot fly but can swim).

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