Young Girl Can Hear – level 1

13-10-2017 07:00

A girl is born without a part of her ear. It makes her partially deaf. Now she is five years old. She gets an implant for her ear. She is the youngest person to get this.

Her doctor talks about the implant. It is small. It is behind the ear. It is under the skin.

It vibrates the inside of the ear. It helps the ear to take in sound. Then the girl can hear.

If you cannot hear, you cannot learn language. You also cannot hear yourself. With the implant, the girl can speak much better. People understand her now.

The girl says that she can hear so many things now. She cannot even say how many things. There are so many!

Difficult words: deaf (when you cannot hear), implant (a thing that people put into the body), vibrate (move back and forth quickly).

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