Elephant learns things in Singapore – level 2

13-06-2016 15:00

In Singapore, an elephant at a safari park gave birth to a calf for the first time in 6 years. The staff has not named to the baby yet but she has a lively personality as she learns to be an elephant.

Some of the baby elephant’s activities are eating adult food, walking with her mother and bathing in a paddling pool. She loves to take baths!

At the end of this month, the public will get to see the baby elephant for the first time.

Difficult words: staff (people who work somewhere), paddling pool (a small and shallow pool).

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