Baby hears for the first time – level 1

27-04-2015 15:00

A baby is born. He is a boy. He cannot hear. Doctors help him. They give the baby hearing aids.

The baby is nine weeks old now. He can hear. His mother talks to him. He can hear her for the first time. The baby smiles.

Someone films the amazing moment. He or she uploads it to YouTube. Many people watch this video.

Difficult words: hearing aid (a thing in the ear which helps people hear), amazing (very nice), upload (to put).

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