Fish attack students – level 1

20-04-2015 15:00

This happens in the USA. A group of men are rowing. They are university students.

They scare fish in the water. The fish start to jump out. There is a lot of them. This is dangerous. The students must stop rowing. They must wait.

Someone films the situation. He uploads it on the Internet. The video becomes very popular. The students are happy that the video is popular. They can make some money from the video.

Difficult words: rowing (the sport of making a boat move through water), dangerous (not safe), upload (to put).

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