  10. 10. THE ANALYSIS 7 - 11: Revengeful You really have a thirst for justice, and your favourite proverb could be “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.” But you are not Zorro, so you should think twice before you punish others for what they did. If you don’t want to end up having no friends at all, try no to retaliate too much.
  11. 11. 12 - 17: Understanding You are a kind person but you try to make people understand where the limits are if they bother you. You don’t want to be taken for a fool: you are not ready to become a Mother Teresa.
  12. 12. 18 - 21: Merciful You are ready to forgive anything. That is cool because you have got that laid back image and really don’t want to pick up fights, and you set good examples. But some people might take advantage of your kindness, so you had better choose your friends carefully.
  13. 13. Now read the dialogue ‘The Elephant and His Friends’. • What is the main idea of this dialogue? • Why do some people prejudice others?

  15. 15. Now let’s read the story itself to see what happened in reality. On the left there are some words that might be new to you.
  16. 16. What is the moral of this text? A friend in need is a friend indeed.
  17. 17. • Did you enjoy this lesson? Why? • Let’s see what you liked most? Open your notebooks and put down your homework: Comment on the statement ‘The story of our world is a story that is still imperfectly known’. You can mention interesting facts about the relationship between animals and people.
