Pre-intermediate - READING COMPREHENSION exercise (Penguin Island)


Read the review about a TV series. Decide if the statements are true (T), false (F) or not mentioned (NM).

One of the best series on TV at the moment must be Penguin Island on Tuesday evenings at 7.30. Next Tuesday will be the last in the series. If you didn’t see the first five programmes, you must watch this last one! It’s a brilliant series about an island, Phillip Island, off the coast of Australia. This island is home for thousands of Little Penguins. These are the smallest penguins in the world. The penguins make their homes and lay their eggs a few hundred meters from the beach. Every day the adult penguins go to sea and swim hundreds of miles to find fish. They bring it back for their babies (called chicks) every night. The part of the island where the penguins live is very special. It is one of the few places in the world where these penguins live and it is very important to protect them. Before, there were holiday houses for Australians here, but not now. The government moved all the people away and knocked down the houses. They wanted to let the penguins live in peace. This was the first time in the world that people had to leave an area to protect the animals! Now, people can come and sit and watch the penguins on the beach. When the penguins come back with their food, they have to walk the few hundred meters to their homes. The people watch this walk. It is called the Penguin Parade! So, people can still enjoy watching the penguins, but they don’t live close to them anymore. The series has watched the lives of several penguins. On Tuesday, we will learn about Tilda, a young female chick. Will her parents come back with food or will she have to go and swim for the first time to find food? Don’t miss this incredible programme. You’ll love it!
