Talking fox from Pakistan – level 2

02-07-2014 07:00

Thousands of families came to a zoo in India. What for? To see a mythical half-fox, half-woman creature!

A man plays this creature. He dresses as a woman. The woman looks like she is part of the body of the fox. The man plays the fox for 12 hours a day. He says that life is short, so it should be spent by making people smile.

People visit the fox not only for a joke, but also to have a peek into their futures. Students always ask about their exam results.

Difficult words: what for? (for what reason?), creature (living thing), peek (look).

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