UPBEAT MUSIC

Kent: This is Kent Moss, the New Dynamic English Man on the Street.

I’m standing outside the Natural History Museum.

With me is Ella Schoeffer-Wolf, who is nine years old.

Ella, tell us why you’re here.

Ella: Well... I wrote a poem for a poetry contest.

The contest was called “River of Words.”

And I won a trip to Washington, D.C.

Kent: And what was your poem about?

Ella: Fish.

Kent: Fish.

Now, why did you write about fish?

Ella: Well... we had to write about something in nature, you know, like the ocean, or rain, or animals.

So I chose fish, because I want people to love fish.

Kent: You want people to love fish?

Ella: Yes, because people pollute the water that fish live in, and then the fish die.

I think if people love fish, then maybe they won’t pollute the oceans and rivers.

Kent: I hope you’re right, Ella.

Well, it’s been very nice talking with you.

Good luck in the future!

Ella: Thank you.
