6 Reading A free ride Matt and his wife lived in the country. Matt was very stingy ( 吝啬的 ) and hated spending money. One day a fair ( 集市 ) came to the nearby town. “Let’s go to the fair, Matt.

And in a nearby field, they saw a small airplane. “Fun flights!” the sign said, “$10 for 10 minutes.” Matt had never been in an airplane. He really wanted to have a try. However, he didn’t want to pay for his wife. “I’ve only got $10,” he told the pilot. “Can my wife come with me for free?” The pilot wasn’t selling many tickets, so he said, “I’ll make a deal ( 做个交易 ) with you.

9 Reading Breakfast Which is the most important meal of the day: breakfast, lunch or dinner? Of course, the answer is breakfast. As the saying goes, we should “eat breakfast like a king”. Breakfast is important because it gives us energy to start the day and get our body running. You might think that we do not use energy when we are asleep, but this is not true. Our body uses energy to do a lot of things at night, so there is not much energy left when we get up in the morning. That is why we need to have breakfast to get energy for a new day. Having breakfast every day can help us keep fit and stay healthy. Breakfast can keep our stomach full, so we do not need other snacks in the morning. Research shows that people who eat breakfast are less likely to overeat ( 吃得过多 ) and get fat. People have different food for breakfast in different countries. A traditional Chinese breakfast includes congee ( 粥 ) and baozi. In Japan, people eat rice and miso soup ( 味噌汤 ). Western people usually eat bread and butter. Ham and fried eggs are also popular. Athletes need a lot of energy to do sports, so they usually have a big breakfast every day. A healthy breakfast for Western athletes may include milk, cheese, butter, bananas, eggs and nuts. For Chinese athletes, they may have soybean milk, salted vegetables and eggs. Do you have breakfast every morning? What do you usually have for breakfast?
