AWhy are there still so many people overweight despite the current fitness craze?
BWell, there are certain factors that effect people’s size and weight.
AWhat are they?
BOne study said that low-income groups have a higher percentage of over-weight people than higher income families.
BThe survey said that the low, income groups eat more junk food on a daily basis.
AThat makes sense. Probably less time to make dinner and the junk food is cheaper.
BAnd junk food contains lots of fat and oil. There is one final reason why so many people are fat.
BNobody exercises any more-not even kids! The average American home has the TV on for 6 hours a day!
AWow! No wonder people are so fat. Say, Carl, looks like you could be doing a bit more exercising.
BYeah, I guess so.
AYou should consider eating healthier food and getting some more exercise.
BHey, I started a diet and lost 10 pounds.
ASo what happened?
BWell, I quit and gained it back plus 5 pounds.
AYou should have kept trying.
AHello Martin. Have you been to any events yet?
你好 Martin, 你去看了什么赛事了吗?
BYes I have. I went to the table tennis yesterday.
AOh wow. How was it?
BOh. It was great. I love Ma Lin. He’s my favourite table tennis player. Have you seen anything yet?
AOh I still haven’t managed to get any tickets. I’d love to see something though.
BWell, let’s go to the marathon tomorrow then! We can just stand by the side of the road.
AWhat a great idea.
AThe dinner was really good. It knocked my socks off.
BThat’s very kind of you to say so. Let’s try some after-dinner wines
AGreat. Sweet wines are my favorite. They always make a great finish to a decilious meal.
BDo you prefer brandy or ports.
BExcellent choice. I love its smooth flavor.
AThe port is quite exquisite. It must have spent years aging in barrels. Am I right?
BYes. You always have a good nose for wines.
ANext time we are about to dinne we should try some Canadian ice wine.
BOh, what’s that?
AIt’s made from natually forzen grapes.
BWhy not? It sounds great.
AOK, here’s to your health.
