Big bird in the streets - level 1
An ostrich ran in a Chinese city. It was a problem for the traffic there.
This big bird wanted to run away. It was shocked and it was afraid. It ran very quickly. It ran into a car and a taxi driver. Police tried to catch the animal but doing that was difficult. Ostriches are very fast birds.
After four hours the animal was caught. It has a little problem with its body but it will be fine.
Interesting words: ostrich (big bird which cannot fly but runs fast), caught (past form of catch).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
