Man and robot - level 1

Man and robot - level 1

12-06-2013 14:00

An Olympic runner had a race. But he didn't run against a person. He ran against a robot. People wanted to know who is faster.

As it turns out, the man didn’t win. The robot was faster. The runner was not happy.

This runner will go to a big race next month. The race will be in Moscow. It is good that there will be no robots there, only people.

Interesting words: runner (person who runs), race (moment when people try to go very fast because they want to be the best), turn out (prove to be in the end).

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