Two Weeks in the Jungle – level 1

14-11-2016 15:00

People save an Australian tourist. They find him in the Malaysian jungle. They find him after two weeks. They take the man in a helicopter. The helicopter takes him to hospital.

The man was lost in a national park in Borneo Island. He was lost on the twentieth of October. The man is about 25 years old.

People find him in a valley. The valley is about five kilometres from base camp.

The man did not eat much food. He ate only plants. He is hungry but his body is OK. He only has some small problems with his feet.

Difficult words: valley (a place where the land goes down between two mountains), base camp (a camp from which you start your journey), ate (past form of “eat”).
