            Part Two: Comprehension:  (30m)

Food is needed for living. All living things need food and water to “survive”. Without food you can live for three or four weeks and without water for two or three days. But the hunger and the thirst you feel make you try to find food or water. When your stomach is empty, it sends messages to you to eat. Your body needs the substances in food for repairing itself and keeping it healthy. When the supplies of these substances decrease, you begin to feel tired and you get sick easily.

When we watch TV, we don’t need to be able to read. We can see and hear what is happening. We can receive information from all over the world as we sit on our chairs. Although newspapers and magazines are very useful because you can read them again and you have time to think about the information, they can only be used by the people who can read.
