(AN ADVANCED READING LESSON)
Last week, large parts of New South Wales, my state here in Australia, saw terrible flooding, which affected homes and businesses. As we all know, natural disasters like this are increasing in regularity and severity.

I hope you learn a lot from this lesson, or at least some new words for bodies of water!
