Penguins learn how to swim - level 1
There is a zoo in England. This zoo has a school for little penguins, a small pool.
The little penguins must learn to swim and hunt. It is very important. A woman teaches them. When they are bigger, they will go to a bigger pool. There are other penguins too in the big pool. The little penguins must fight for food. It is not easy. If they cannot hunt, they cannot eat.
This kind of penguin lives in South America. There are not many penguins of this kind. People try to save them.
Difficult words: hunt (catch fish and eat them), fight (use your power against somebody in a difficult situation), kind (type).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
