Terminator and an elephant – level 2

Terminator and an elephant – level 2

08-06-2016 15:00

The Terminator met an elephant. While on safari in South Africa, Arnold Schwarzenegger had a very close encounter with an elephant.

He shared the video with his 5.4 million followers on Instagram just after it happened. An elephant was moving around his car. When the car started to move, it started running behind it.

The experience did not put Schwarzenegger off. He tweeted that people should stop killing elephants, and that they should take a photo, not a shot.

Difficult words: encounter (a meeting), experience (something which happens to you), put off (when something makes you feel uncomfortable), shot (this is a pun as it means two things – a shot from a gun and a photo can be called a shot).

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