Family Meets Bear – level 2

14-11-2022 15:00

A family made a trip to the Dolomites, Italy. They were having a picnic, and twelve-year-old Alessandro was wandering in the bushes. Suddenly, a bear appeared behind him, and the animal started to move towards the boy.

Alessando is very keen on nature, and he knew that he had to walk slowly away. If the boy walked too fast, the bear could attack him. It was also important not to look the bear in the eyes.

Alessandro’s mother was very scared, and the boy told her to stay calm. When the boy reached his family, the bear went away.

Later, Alessandro said that the experience was very exciting. The boy said that he was the happiest child in the world.

Difficult words:  keen (be very interested, like something very much), reach (to get to a place or close to someone), experience (something that happens to someone).
