Forty years in a jungle - level 2
During the Vietnam war, a man lost his wife and two sons. He wanted to save his third son and himself, so they escaped into the jungle.
There in the trees they built their new home. They ate only wild rice, fruit and vegetables. They made their own clothes, too. The two had no contact with the world. Until now. Some people found them after an unbelievable forty years. The father is now 82 and the son is 41.
The father forgot much of his language and the son only knows a few words. It will be hard to socialise again for them.
Difficult words: escape (run away), socialise (spend good time with other people).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
