Chaos during a bullfight – level 1

26-06-2014 07:00

There is a festival in Peru. This festival is a tradition. It started in the 17th century. The festival ends with a bullfight.

The bull is on a rope. The drunken assistant lets the bull go. It is free and angry. It runs into people and throws them in the air. More than 10 people are hurt. People catch the assistant. They hit him for letting the bull go.

Difficult words: festival (a special event), tradition (something old and typical for a country), rope (line), drunken (he has alcohol in his body), hurt (have problems with the body).

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