Ferry on fire - level 1

Ferry on fire - level 1

13-05-2015 07:00

Mallorca is a Spanish island. A ferry goes from Mallorca to Spain. The ferry gets on fire. We don’t know why. A man films the ferry. Black smoke comes from it.

There are 156 people on board. They leave in life boats. All 156 of them are OK.

Difficult words: ferry (a big boat for moving people), on board (on a boat), life boat (a small boat which people use if they must leave a big boat).

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

What do you think about what happened to the ferry?
