Shark on a beach - level 2

Shark on a beach - level 2

26-07-2013 14:00

Some men were fishing, but they caught something different than they wanted to. They caught a shark.

It was one of the smaller sharks but it was still dangerous. Luckily, a guy who specialises in catching sharks helped. He fought with the shark and he got the situation under control.

Catching sharks is only a hobby for him so he didn't kill it. All of the people took some pictures and let the shark go back to the ocean. People at the beach had fun watching the battle, too.

Difficult words: guy (man), specialise (do something often and be good at it).

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