Terminator and an elephant – level 1

06-12-2023 15:00

Arnold Schwarzenegger is on safari in South Africa. He is in a car. The car is not moving. An elephant comes close to the car. It moves around the car slowly.

The car starts to move. The elephant starts to run behind the car. This is a little scary.

Schwarzenegger films this. He shares the video with his 5.4 million followers on Instagram. He says that people should not kill elephants.

Difficult words: share (to show or give something to other people), follower (when a person watches somebody on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook), should not (it is good not to do it).

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

What message is Schwarzenegger trying to send with his video?
