About a tiger and a goat - level 1

05-02-2016 07:00

Amur is a tiger. He lives in a zoo. People give him a goat. The goat is the tiger’s food. Something interesting happens. The tiger does not eat the goat. They become friends.

The goat is cheeky. It plays with the tiger. It sleeps in the tiger’s bed. Amur is OK with it.

However, there is an incident. The tiger and the goat play, and the goat hits the tiger with its horns. Amur hits the goat back. The goat must see a doctor, but it is OK. Now, the goat knows that the tiger is the boss.

Difficult words: cheeky (not scared and not showing respect), incident (a situation when something bad happens), horns (the two hard and dangerous bones which grow out from some animals’ heads).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
