Two bears meet – level 1

25-06-2014 07:00

A bear moves from the USA to England. It is a special thing. Animals rarely move between the continents.

The bear’s name is Bernardo. He is very nice and calm. He explores his new home. He is not alone. He is with a female bear. The two are becoming friends.

People hope that the two bears will like each other. People hope that they will have babies.

Difficult words: rarely (not often), explore (to get to know an area), female (girl).

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

Do you have bears in your country?
