Elephant meets tourists – level 1

20-01-2015 15:00

This news is from a park in Thailand. Around 300 elephants live there. People can visit the park. They go on a road in their cars.

One elephant gets very close to the cars. It rubs itself against them. It tries to sit on one. It damages the car. People do not do anything. They sit and wait.

Difficult words: rub (to press), damage (to break).

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

It is a scary situation, isn't it?
