Sample Reading Passage with Questions
1.
Banana smoothies first appeared in the 1930s. Since then, they have
become very popular across the world. Not only is the banana
smoothie delicious, but it has many of the nutrients our bodies need to
function.
2.
Banana smoothies are made from fresh bananas using an electric
blender. The fresh fruit gives it that chunky but creamy look. The ice
keeps it cool in the hot summer heat. Bananas have a lot of healthy
carbohydrates which makes them a perfect food for athletes and
people with active lifestyles. Smoothies help to give energy after a
difficult workout.
3.
Doctors recommend bananas to patients who have heart problems and
high blood pressure, as they lower the risk of stroke and heart attacks.
Another good thing about this wonderful fruit is that it protects against
depression and keeps you in a good mood.
4.
Banana smoothies, when mixed with yogurt and other fruits like apples
or mangos, protect you from stomach ulcers and help your digestive
system. Bananas are a low-calorie food; there are about 100 calories in
a medium sized banana. They make you feel full, so if you eat a
banana, you will avoid snacking between meals. This is beneficial
because it helps you to reach your weight loss goals. But make sure
you don’t put sugar in your smoothie. Bananas are sweet enough!

Mr. Ali
Well, my flight from Riyadh arrives in Jeddah on January 10th
and I will be staying for two... no wait... three... yes, I’ll be in
Jeddah for three nights before leaving for meetings in Taif and
Abha…
So you’d like to book a room from January 10th through January
13th...
No, not the 13th, the 12th... I said I’d be there for three nights...
not four...
Yes, of course, sir, but you will be checking out of the hotel on
January 13th, correct?
Ah, yes, of course... you’re right. The check-out date will be
January 13th.
Let me just check the computer to see if we have rooms
available... mmmm, let’s see... we have a double room on
January 10th and 11th, but there’s nothing on the 12th... no
wait... I’m sorry, my mistake... we do have a junior suite
available on the 12th.
No that won’t work... I don’t want to change rooms.
Let me see then... hmmm... you could book the junior suite for
your entire stay...
Can you tell me how much the junior suite is?
Of course, sir... it’s one thousand two hundred and fifty Riyals
per night.
And what about a double room?
Our standard rate for the double room is seven hundred and
fifty Riyals... so the junior suite is only five hundred Riyals more
per night than the double.
Hmmm, that’s a bit more than I wanted to spend...
If you are travelling on business, I can apply our corporate
discount of twenty per cent to your booking, sir...
Yes, I will be in Jeddah to meet with some clients. So with the
discount, that would make the rate... let me think, twenty per
cent of twelve fifty is...
It would be a discount of two hundred and fifty Riyals per night,
sir...
Great! Let’s book it then...
