Scary mirror – level 1

06-11-2014 07:00

It is Halloween. People like to be scared on Halloween. A company wants to scare people. They do this in the toilet.

They change the mirrors in the toilets. These mirrors can see you. They know where your face is. When you get close, your face in the mirror changes. You can look like a zombie, a scary clown or a werewolf.

The mirrors scare people, but then they like it. However, one woman is really shocked. She runs away.

Difficult words: company (a business), zombie (a human who is dead and can move and wants to eat other humans), werewolf (a human which part wolf – a dangerous animal which is like a dog).

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