THE SHEPHERD'S BOY AND THE WOLF

ORİJİNAL METİN (DİNLEME METNİ)

 

BASİTLEŞTİRİLMİŞ METİN
A shepherd's boy was tending his flock near a village. He wanted to have fun; he made a plan; he would play a trick on the villagers by pretending that a wolf was attacking the sheep. So, he shouted out, "Wolf! Wolf!". When people heard him, they came running, and the boy laughed at them. Then, on another day, he played the same trick, and the people came running again but there was no wolf. At last, a wolf really did come and the boy cried, "Wolf! wolf!", but the people were used to hearing him shout "wolf", so they did not think he was serious. And things were very easy for the wolf; he killed all the sheep one by one without a hurry.
You cannot believe a liar even when he tells the truth.

THE SHEPHERD'S BOY AND THE WOLF
A Shepherd's Boy was tending his flock near a village, and thought it would be great fun to hoax the villagers by pretending that a Wolf was attacking the sheep: so he shouted out, "Wolf! wolf!" and when the people came running up he laughed at them for their pains. He did this more than once, and every time the villagers found they had been hoaxed, for there was no Wolf at all. At last a Wolf really did come, and the Boy cried, "Wolf! wolf!" as loud as he could: but the people were so used to hearing him call that they took no notice of his cries for help. And so the Wolf had it all his own way, and killed off sheep after sheep at his leisure.
You cannot believe a liar even when he tells the truth.
