Town Has Strange Records – level 1

28-07-2021 15:00

In the Czech Republic, a small town earns many records. They are very strange records. One is for racing with ladders. Another is for folding scarves. The town has a festival to show off.

The president of the festival is happy to see people come. He wants to show people that life is about doing things. That it is not just about the Internet.

Difficult words: earn (do something to get something), record (when someone does something better or faster), ladder (you stand on this thing to get to high places), fold (prepare clothes for the wardrobe).

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