THE BEAR AND THE TRAVELLERS

ORİJİNAL METİN (DİNLEME METNİ)

 

BASİTLEŞTİRİLMİŞ METİN
Two travellers were walking together. Suddenly a bear appeared on the way. Before the bear saw them, one of the travellers ran towards a tree at the side of the road, and climbed up into the branches and hid there. The other traveller was not very quick. He could not escape. So, he threw himself on the ground and pretended to be dead. The bear came and sniffed all around him. The traveller held his breath because he thought that a bear will not touch a dead man, and he was right! The bear thought he was dead and went away. When there was no danger, the traveller on the tree came down. "What did the bear tell you?", he asked. The other traveller replied, "He told me that I mustn't travel with a friend who deserts you at the first sign of danger.

THE BEAR AND THE TRAVELLERS
Two Travellers were on the road together, when a Bear suddenly appeared on the scene. Before he observed them, one made for a tree at the side of the road, and climbed up into the branches and hid there. The other was not so nimble as his companion; and, as he could not escape, he threw himself on the ground and pretended to be dead. The Bear came up and sniffed all round him, but he kept perfectly still and held his breath: for they say that a bear will not touch a dead body. The Bear took him for a corpse, and went away. When the coast was clear, the Traveller in the tree came down, and asked the other what it was the Bear had whispered to him when he put his mouth to his ear. The other replied, "He told me never again to travel with a friend who deserts you at the first sign of danger."
