Man Gets a New Face – Level 1

10-06-2015 07:00

A man has a bad accident. The accident destroys his face. He feels very bad about how he looks.

A second man is in a car accident. He dies. His family donates his face to the first man.

The first man has surgery. It goes very well. He now has a new face. Our bodies usually reject new body parts. His body does not reject the face.

The sister of the second man meets the first man. She is happy. She says that she sees her brother.

Difficult words: donate (to give something to help someone), surgery (when doctors work on your body), reject (to get rid of something).

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

What do you think about that the man’s new face?
