Man with no legs on a mountain – level 1

07-10-2014 15:00

A boy from China falls from a train. He loses his legs. That boy is a man now. He is 31 years old.

He has no legs, but he enjoys life to the max. He climbs up a mountain. He uses two boxes. He puts them under his body. Some people watch him. They tell him that he can do it. His wife is on top of the mountain. She waits for him there.

Difficult words: enjoy (to like something a lot), to the max (to 100%), climb (to come up).

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

Inspiring, isn't it?
