I like this episode.Old stories from history are my favorite topics.thanks!

•Are there any old stories about monsters in your country?
sure not for luck :P ,. even we don't have a lack ,. just sea

•Why do you think some stories are passed down from generation to generation?
I think because the science show us with evidences that those stories  are not facts and it like imagination from some people in the past  

•Are these stories factual? (based on the truth)
absolutely not
 

Hi folks!
I'm Luiz from Brazil.
Here in Brazil we have lots of legends about magic creatures which supposedly live into our forests. many people think that in Brazil we have only forests but, unfortunately, we have much more big cities than forests.
Well, the places where forests remain we can find legends about "Saci Pererê" a black boy using a red hood who has only one leg and has magic powers. He loves to prank who enter into the forest.
There is also a big alligator called Cuca that is a witch too. Cuca loves to do bad things.
Another legend is about of a headless mule ( literally in Portuguese "Mula Sem Cabeça").
It's a kind of mule ghost that has no head and instead has fire flowing through the neck.
Boitatá is a ball of fire that hunt you through the forest at night.
It's another kind of ghost.
 
I never found anything like those things... I guess it's because I live far away from big forests... Who knows?
 
That's all :)

Hi everyone! There is a lot of charming legends (happily not only about monsters) in Kazakhstan. There are lots of  lakes, forests and mountains here so people have always had many matters for creating stories and tales. I love one of such legends the most. It's about a part of a rock in the centre of  Burabai lake on the North of Kazakhstan. The legend says that many years ago a young clever and beautiful lady escaped from her parents' home with her beloved who was not rich, but whom she sincerely loved. Her father was furious that she didn't realize his wish to get married to a wealthy powerful man, and sent his sons to catch the escapees and kill the young man. When they had been finally caught and the lady had seen her sweetheart dead she asked the god to transform her to a stone. Since then she is in the centre of the lake - looks like a young lady if you look from one side and as an ugly old woman - from another...

In my country there is a story about Sava Savanovic. He was a vamapair and he was like young gisrls to drinck they blood. But this is  something like  count Drakula in ROmania.

I do believe to the monster of Loch Ness. I will go to visit that lake and that area. Tomorow I will talk about that legend with mz five year old doughter. She will like that.

hello everybody.
Stenven tried to find the monster but he can't saw it although a monster was behind him when he was making a photo.
I really want to know what would happen if a monster suddenly appeared in front of Steven.
What would you think about this if it came true.
Best wishes
Truong.

hi!!
I think Steven is absolutely amazing. At preview section of this lesson  when he looked at the photo of monster he believed it real. He always try for take a photo of monster. If the monster suddenly appeared in front of Steven, may be he'll shout and tell to Ashlie: "com on Ash , take a photo for me with monster"... ha ha...
 Hearvu!

 Thanks!!! Ashli & Steven are amazing !!! beautiful!!! I like them!!!!  they help me to learn English!
