President and a big fish - level 2

President and a big fish - level 2

08-08-2013 14:00

The Russian President is a tough guy and he likes to remind people of it.

Recently, he was fishing in Siberia with his friend and he caught a big fish. It was a 21-kilo pike. Everything was, of course, filmed.

The sixty-year-old president can also shoot guns, ride on horses or even put out forest fires. We'll see, what's next.

Difficult words: tough guy (strong man), remind (show), pike (fast fish that eats smaller fish), put out (make it go away).

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