Elephants like music - level 2

Elephants like music - level 2

18-06-2015 15:00

A zoo in Belgium was planning a series of nights where live music would be played around the park. The workers weren’t sure if the elephants would worry about the new sounds.

They decided to test the elephants – two violinists played to them. The result? The elephants were not worried. In fact, they liked the music and swayed to it.

Someone filmed the elephants and uploaded the video on the Internet. Many people watched the video – the elephants are really sweet!

Difficult words: series (a group of events that are planned to happen one after the other), violinist (a person who plays the violin), sway to (move from side to side).

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

Do you know other animals that like music?
