Very Heavy Woman – level 1

20-02-2017 07:00

An Egyptian woman weighs 500 kilogrammes. She is the heaviest woman in the world. She needs to go to India to see doctors. She needs weight reduction surgery.

She flies to India. In India, she cannot travel in a car. She is too heavy. She must travel in a bed. The bed is on a truck. The truck takes her to hospital. A crane moves the bed to a hospital window.

Difficult words: need (if you need to do something, it is very good to do it), weight reduction surgery (when doctors take fat from your body), crane (a big machine which can move very heavy things; people use it when they are building houses).

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