Elephants learn to work together

Can elephants learn to work together to complete a task that they cannot achieve on their own?

Do the preparation task first. Then watch the video and do the exercises. Remember you can read the transcript at any time.




Tell me please what meaning the word "brand" has in this video.
"to work together to solve a brand new problem?"
Thanks a lot.

Hello Olga

Good question! 'brand new' is just an emphatic way of saying 'new'. If you follow the link, you can see a couple of other example sentences.

All the best

We always had dogs in my parents house and I remember they were very intelligent.They were German Shepherd Dogs and they were sweet and had very friendly behaviour with family members.They were playing with us regular games of fetch with stick, ball or frisbee.

I don't have any animal but when i see them at any other place I'm always impressed by their actions and the ways they adapt and even the ways by which they deal with us.

The animals are very intelligent.They are enough brain to solve a problem..specially when is something that they like ÷food or another thing prefered

I have a dog and he is clever, but I can not say that he can co-operate with other dogs.. Maybe if my dog gets in to trouble he wii do it.

Every animal knows how to feed and protect themselves. The God gave them knowledge how to fight for surviving

I absolutely agree with you

Unfotunately I don't have much experience dealing with animals...actually, I'm afraid of most of them. But I think they can cooperate well enough, for example you can see even animals that are presumed to be enemies live together or even become friends when they have to survive.

In my opinion, animals have strong enough brain to realise , what they want and what they need . They know that they need other animal for something ... With a lot of practising they will be able to work with partner.
