New Elvis Museum – level 1

13-03-2017 15:00

Elvis Presley died 40 years ago. His ex-wife opens a new Elvis centre. Her name is Priscilla. The centre is in Memphis, Tennessee. Priscilla thinks that Elvis would like the centre. He liked sharing things with his fans.

The centre has many things. It has memorabilia, cars, shops, and two restaurants. It is 19,000 square-metres big. It is part of a $140 million building project to Graceland. People also build a hotel.

Difficult words: share (if you share something with somebody, you enjoy it together), memorabilia (souvenirs; things with a picture of a celebrity), Graceland (the name of the place where Elvis lived).

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