Time-lapse selfie video – level 2

08-10-2014 07:00

A person attacked a young man in a bar in Dublin three years ago. Glass cut his face.

When the attack occurred, this man already took selfies. He continued after the attack and created a time-lapse video. It shows his healthy face at the beginning. Suddenly, the terrible injury appears. The video then continues to show how his face gets better with time.

Difficult words: occur (happen), continue (not to stop doing something), time-lapse (video which is created by putting together photographs and then playing them fast).

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