Very short story in English
Three men were walking in a field. The first one said, What’s that? The second one said, I don’t know, I’ve never seen anything like it before. And all of a sudden a lion jumped out of it! It killed them both but left their bodies untouched.
A few minutes later another man walked by and saw their bodies so he decided to bury them. He asked himself why they were still undamaged by nature.
So he went back to see what was in that thing they saw just before they died, but when he looked inside it was an empty coffin. It wasn’t always like that because once it was used for a very powerful king who ruled his land with wisdom.
(n.) Something that proves you’ve done something. Example: Joe received a certificate of completion. (v.) To carry out or accomplish something. Example: Sam completed his chores in just an hour! Both definitions are useful and important in English, so be sure to learn them both!
Use our pronunciation key to help your child memorize these two important words. If your child is struggling with pronunciation, have him repeat after you as you say each word aloud. It will help solidify what he has learned when he is practicing alone. It may also encourage him to spend more time practicing on his own if he sees how much progress he can make when you’re helping him!

In order to improve your speaking skills in English, you can use very short stories with kids. These stories are called Fables or Parables. You can read them out loud to a child or you can record yourself reading them aloud. After that, ask your child questions about what they’ve just heard and you’ll be surprised by how much more engaged they will be while also learning new vocabulary at their own pace.
