Listen to the story just for fun and do the task.
Tim was a young sailor. He lived in Scotland, but he was often away with his ship.
One summer he came back from a long voyage and found new neighbours near his mother’s house. They had a pretty daughter, and Tim soon loved her very much. He said to her, “My next voyage will begin in a few days’ time, Jill. I love you, and I’ll marry you when I come back. I’ll think about you all the time, and I’ll write to you and send you a present from every port”.
Tim’s first port was Freetown in Africa, and he sent Jill a parrot from there. It spoke five languages.
When Tim’s ship reached New Zealand, there was a letter from Jill. It said, “Thank you for the parrot, Tim. It tasted much better than a chicken”.
