Boy hears for the first time - level 1

A boy couldn’t hear from the time that he was born. He is three years old now. Doctors in the US helped him. The video shows the moment when the boy hears his father's speak for the first time.

The boy got a special implant. The doctors will test if the implant is good for children. The doctors connected the implant directly with the boy’s brain. The boy will now learn how to speak.

Interesting words: implant (something which is put in your body during an operation), directly (with nothing between).

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