Men fly over Dubai – level 1

20-05-2015 07:00

In Dubai, two men get in a helicopter. The helicopter flies over Dubai. Then they jump out of the helicopter. They wear wings. Jets make the wings stay up in the air. The men fly over Dubai.

They do stunts. They hold their hands out. They look like two Supermen.

They stop flying after ten minutes. They have parachutes. The parachutes help them go down slowly.

Difficult words: wing (a thing that helps you fly), jet (a strong engine – a thing which can make something move), stunt (when you do something that is dangerous).

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

What do you think about these men?
