Animals see the future – level 1

An octopus predicts the outcome of 8 matches in the 2010 World Cup. Now, there are two new animals. They predict the future, too.

They are in a zoo in Germany. One is a koala and the other one is a sea lion. The sea lion predicts that Germany plays with Ukraine. The koala predicts that Ukraine wins.

Difficult words: octopus (a sea animal with eight arms), predict (say that something will happen in the future), match (a football game), outcome (a result, how something ends), sea lion (a sea animal which rests on land but catches fish in the water).

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