Bull run 2014 – level 1

14-07-2014 07:00

Here is some news from Spain. The famous bull run takes place in a town. Bulls chase people in the streets. People from Spain are not alone at this festival. People from other countries come, too.

However, all is not well. A bull hits two people. One man is American. The other man is from Great Britain. The man from Britain is in hospital. His condition is serious.

Bulls are not the only danger. You must watch out for the people, too. You must step and jump over them.

Difficult words: bull run (bulls chase people as a sport), take place (happen), chase (to run after somebody to catch them), condition (situation).

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

Would you like to take part in a bull run?
