Boy hears for the first time - level 2
A boy was born deaf but a successful surgery in the US means that now he can hear.
The video shows the emotional moment when the three-year-old boy hears his father's voice for the first time.
The boy received a special implant. Doctors will test him now to see if the implants can work for children because they already work on adults. Doctors used the type of hearing implant that was placed directly on the boy’s brain. He now will have several years of therapy to improve his hearing and his speech.
Interesting words: deaf (not able to hear), speech (speaking).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
