Narrative Text : The Smartest Parrot

Senin, 18 Februari 2013

Biasanya, anak sekolah itu ditugasin buat nyari narrative text buat tugas bahasa Inggris. Materi narrative text itu diajarin sejak SMP, tapi masi diulang-ulang lagi sampe tingkat SMA, tapi bedanya kalu di SMA itu makin mendalam. Trus biasanya juga makin susah. Karena aku juga pernah ditugasin, hehe :).

Ini ada satu contoh narrative text, nanti kalau belum ngerti artinya, aku kasih tau sedikit pengertinnya di bawah, sekarang baca dulu. Check it out!
The Smartest Parrot
Once upon time, a man had a wonderful parrot. There was no other parrot like it. The parrot could say every word, except one word. The parrot would not say the name of the place where it was born. The name of the place was Catano.
The man felt excited having the smartest parrot but he could not understand why the parrot would not say Catano. The man tried to teach the bird to say Catano however the bird kept not saying the word.

At the first, the man was very nice to the bird but then he got very angry. “You stupid bird!” pointed the man to the parrot. “Why can’t you say the word? Say Catano! Or I will kill you” the man said angrily. Although he tried hard to teach, the parrot would not say it. Then the man got so angry and shouted to the bird over and over; “Say Catano or I’ll kill you”. The bird kept not to say the word of Catano.

One day, after he had been trying so many times to make the bird say Catano, the man really got very angry. He could not bear it. He picked the parrot and threw it into the chicken house. There were four old chickens for next dinner “You are as stupid as the chickens. Just stay with them” Said the man angrily. Then he continued to humble; “You know, I will cut the chicken for my meal. Next it will be your turn, I will eat you too, stupid parrot”. After that he left the chicken house.

The next day, the man came back to the chicken house. He opened the door and was very surprised. He could not believe what he saw at the chicken house. There were three death chickens on the floor. At the moment, the parrot was standing proudly and screaming at the last old chicken; “Say Catano or I’ll kill you”.


Cerita diatas kurang lebih isinya begini, ada seseorang yang punya burung beo yang cantik dan nggak ada duanya. Burung ini katanya burung terpintar. Burung itu bisa berkata semua kata kecuali nama tempat kelahirannya, Catano. Yang punya burung itu, seorang laki-laki. Dia terus berusaha ngajarin burung itu ngomong "Catano". Tapi burung iti tetep nggak bisa. alki-laki itu sangat heran.
Awalnya, yang punya burung mengajarinya dengan halus, tapi lama-kelamaan laki-laki itu marah karena si burung tetep nggak bisa. laki-laki itu mengancam akan membunuh si burung jiaka ia tidak mau bilang kata itu. " Katakan Catano, atau aku akan membunuhmu". Sampai akhirnya, laki-laki iti mencapai puncak kemarahannnya. Dia membawa burung itu di kandang ayam yang isinya ada 4 ayam yang uadah tua. Ayam-ayam itu akan disembelih untuk makan malamnya, dan mengancam akan menyembelh burung itu juga.
Keesokan harinya, laki-laki itu sangat terkejut ketika kembali ke kandang ayamnya. 3 ayamnya mati di atas lantai dan burungnya berteriak dan berdiri dengan bangga pada ayam yang terakhir. "Katakan Catano, atau aku akan membunuhmu".

Yaa... kurang lebih ceritanya seperti itu, semoga bermanfaat! :)
