English writing exercise – Describe a moment of the video
1. The young skateboarder (4:17 – 4:20) does an unbelievable somersault from one skateboard at the top of some steps and lands perfectly on another board at the bottom of the stairs. It’s amazing to see his wonderful skill all in beautiful slow-motion.
2. A stupid man (2:38 – 2:40) was standing backwards on his motorbike seat and riding extremely fast down the motorway. It was very dangerous and he is lucky to be alive.
3. A massive, hungry, angry polar bear (7:57 – 8:01) is scratching at a window trying to get to the incredibly frightened person inside. If it had been me, I would have been terrified!
