Tortoise and a dog play - level 2

13-04-2015 15:00

This news is about two playful animals – an eight-year-old tortoise and a three-year-old dog.

These two animals love to play with each other – they play chase. The owner of the animals filmed them and uploaded the video on the Internet – it went viral.

Check out the video. The two are really cute!

Difficult words: chase (a game when animals try to catch each other), go viral (when something on the Internet goes viral, it very quickly becomes very popular), cute (nice, making people happy).

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