Sleep with sharks – level 2

06-04-2016 07:00

Airbnb is offering its users the chance to win a night in an underwater bedroom at Aquarium de Paris. The bedroom is a small capsule in a ten-metre-deep tank in the water.

The capsule is transparent so you get a great view at the ten-metre-deep tank. The most interesting part is that there are 35 sharks in the tank.

The stay in the bedroom lets you see sharks up close, but just don’t watch “Jaws” before going there!

Difficult words: capsule (a box), tank (a box for fish), transparent (see-through).

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