Waiter Race – level 2

19-10-2017 07:00

People often call Buenos Aires, Argentina, ‘the Paris of the South’ as it takes great pride in its café culture. The city also annually hosts a waiter race.

Hundreds of waiters and waitresses take part in the race. They serve drinks to customers 1,600 metres away as quickly as possible.

There are different categories, and the winning prize is 1,000 US dollars.

Difficult words: annually (every year), prize (something which the winner gets).

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