Problem with Skinny Jeans – level 1

20-06-2022 15:00

A woman is moving house. She needs to move her things. She squats for hours. She wears skinny jeans. The jeans make her legs swell. She must go to hospital. Doctors help her. After four days, she is fine.

Skinny jeans are popular, but they are not healthy.

Difficult words: squat (to sit with your knees bent under you and your bottom just off the ground), swell (to get bigger because something is wrong).

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