Here is some news from England. A man has a friend. The friend is very special. The friend is not a man. He is not a dog, either. He is a camel! His name is Jeffrey.

Jeffrey is from Russia. He is fine with cold temperatures. He can live when it’s minus 25 degrees Celsius. Jeffrey has two humps. He can live up to 60 years. Jeffrey was a birthday gift. He was a gift for the man’s son.

The man brings the camel good food. It is usually carrots. Sometimes, the man brings something special. Beer! The camel loves it!

Difficult words: either (too), hump (small hill on the camel’s back).

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