Zip-Line from the Eiffel Tower – level 1

09-06-2017 15:00

This week, there is a zip-line off the Eiffel Tower. People jump from the second floor of the tower. They go almost 100 kilometres per hour. They land 800 metres from the tower.

This is not the first time that there is a zip-line. However, the previous zip-line was from the first floor. This zip-line is from the second floor. It is more fun.

Difficult words: zip-line (a cable or rope between a higher and lower place), previous (a previous thing happens before another thing), was (‘is’ in the past).

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