LET US LEARN
Robinson Crusoe was a brave young man. He loved adventures. When he was nineteen years old, he left his home and took travel in the sea. One day, his ship started to sink because of a great storm. Robinson managed to swim to an island. When he reached the island, he was so tired that he just slept on the sand. When he woke up, he found a little dog next to him. They both were all alone in that place.
Robinson explored the island, and he found the broken ship. He took some food, guns, clothing and tools from it. He made a tent and lived in it. He counted days on a wooden cross. From then on, he was able to keep a calendar. On the island, he found many kinds of goats and hares which he shot and ate.
Then, he made a small boat.
One day, Robinson found a footprint of a human, on the other side of the island. He was frightened. For two years he lived in fear. Then, one day he saw some tribal men chasing a young fellow. Robinson took out his gun and shot twice. The tribal men got scared and ran away. He named him Friday as he met him on Friday. At last, he had a human friend in the island. Robinson taught Friday to speak in English, to shoot and eat like a human.
One day, they both saved some people from the cannibals. Among them, they found Friday’s father and his friends. They stayed with Robinson and Friday for a few days and left the island. Another day, Friday informed Robinson about a ship. They both hid and watched the ship. Robinson learnt that the ship’s men had rebelled against the captain. After killing some of the rebels, Robinson, Friday and the captain retook the ship. At last, Robinson sailed from the island to England with Friday, after twenty-eight years, two months and nineteen days.
