Bull run 2014 – level 2

14-07-2014 07:00

The famous bull run took place in a Spanish town. Bulls chased hundreds of runners in the narrow streets. Locals, as well as visitors from around the world, attend this festival. However, all wasn’t well. A bull gored one American man and one British man. The Briton is in hospital. His condition is critical.

The bulls aren’t the only danger. You have to watch out for them and the other people. You must step and jump over them.

Difficult words: chase (follow somebody and to catch him), attend (come somewhere), gore (hit by the horns of an animal), critical (serious).

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