Card ¹5

Healthy Way of Life

Task 1. Imagine that you are preparing a project with your friend. You have found some interesting material for the presentation and you want to read this text to your friend. You have 1.5 minutes to read the text silently, then be ready to read it out aloud. You will not have more than 1.5 minutes to read it.

When I first met Makato Okushimo, I would have said she was seventy-five, perhaps eighty years old. In fact, she is 100 years old, which is not at all unusual in Okinawa. I came to find out the secret of these healthy islanders’ longevity. After we arrived at Makato’s house, I watched with fascination as Makato prepared the food. As well as the fish, there were portions of sweet potato, spring onion and other fresh, locally grown vegetables. There was also plenty of brown rice and tofu – a soya product high in protein and vitamins. After the meal we drank green tea, which is said to have many health benefits and helps burn calories, as well. There were no sugary drinks and only a little locally produced rice wine, which the Okinawans firmly believe helps to prevent illnesses. I asked Makato what she thought the secret to her good health was. “Well, we have a healthy, low-fat diet and we eat slowly to savour our food. But it’s also important to stay active.”
