Topic - Bored Penguins visit Art Museum
Reading:
A group of penguins became a tour group for the day when they visited an art museum. The penguins were from the Kansas City Zoo in the USA. The zoo teamed up with the nearby Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Bosses of both the zoo and the art museum decided the penguins needed a change of scenery. The penguins were getting lonely because the zoo is closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. They are used to seeing many visitors every day. A zoo official said: "Quarantine has caused everyone to go a little stir crazy, even the residents of the Kansas City Zoo. So several of the penguins decided to go on a field trip to the Nelson-Atkins, which is still closed, to get a little culture."
The zoo's executive director, Randy Wisthoff, said the penguins have missed their regular interactions with zoo visitors. He said: "We're always looking for ways to enrich their lives and stimulate their days. During this shutdown period, our animals really miss visitors coming up to see them." The museum director joked that the penguins liked the art of Italian artists. He said: "They seemed to react much better to Caravaggio than to Monet." He added: "We are so happy today to welcome our colleagues from the zoo and they've brought special friends and we're seeing how the react to art." The penguins that visited the museum were Humboldt penguins, which are native to Peru and Chile.

Hi everybody! My name is Monique and I am a Native English speaker from sunny South Africa. Do you need help with Business English? Conversational English? English for travel? Preparing for an exam? I can help you! I have a Bachelor of Commerce Degree in Marketing Management as well as a 120 Hour TEFL Certificate. I taught English to adults in South Korea, where I taught Business English, conversational English and also helped students prepare for English proficiency tests like IELTS, OPIC, TOEIC and TOEFL. Apart from that I also coached students on job interviews, college interviews and reviewed résumés. I have worked in a corporate environment for about 7 years, so I have the experience and knowledge to teach students the correct expressions and mannerisms to use in business meetings, presentations, emails, conference calls and so forth. I am a very patient person, this is one of my strongest skills in my teaching method as it definitely makes students feel at ease and help them build confidence in their language ability. I am very excited to meet you, learn your individual language goals and start working towards reaching those!
