Monkey Takes Selfies – level 2

21-09-2020 15:00

A 20-year-old student from Malaysia lost his phone. The incident happened when the man was sleeping, so it was not clear what really happened.

Later, the man heard a phone ringing in the forest behind his house. He was surprised when he found out that it was his phone. The man’s uncle joked that the thief maybe took a picture of himself, which made the man check his phone camera.

When the man checked, the mystery unlocked. There were many pictures of a monkey looking at the phone, and the monkey even made a video when he tried to eat the phone.

In the area where the man lives, monkeys usually do not steal things. The man thinks that the monkey got in the house through the open window in his brother’s bedroom.

Difficult words: incident (something that happens), mystery (something that people cannot explain), unlock (to solve something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
