Six-year-old girl is saved – level 1

21-04-2014 07:00

A boat sinks near South Korea. A six-year-old girl is lucky. People rescue her. Sadly, her parents are still missing.

The girl goes to hospital. People try to find her family. They find the girl’s uncle.

People look for the girl’s parents. We have no information about them.

Difficult words: sink (get under water), rescue (save), be missing (we do not know where they are).

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